2 Watch Box in Light Grey Dyed Figured Sycamore

A small Light Grey Sycamore watch box holding two wrist watches on soft yet firm cylinder cushions. The box includes a small tray for cuff links and other accessories.

The exterior of the handmade wooden box is covered in a light grey figured Sycamore veneer. Figuring appears lightly at right angles across the grain. Additionally, the edges of the box are a creamy-white coloured hard Maple. These are inlaid with double lines of black dyed Sycamore.

A soft hairsheep leather in dark Navy Blue lines the interior of the box. The subdued and dark lining contrasts well against the lighter colour of the Light Grey Sycamore watch box. Two sections are provided for the watches, each with a suede covered cushion. Similarly, the smooth suede also lines the Maple tray. As the tray is suspended in the front compartment, this results in there being plenty of usable space underneath.

Stainless Steel stopped hinges and a Nickel plated brass sliding catch are fitted to the box.

Finally the box is finished with a low sheen lacquer.

This kind of figured Sycamore normally has an interesting ribbon or flame of figure perpendicular to the grain direction giving causing a shimmer effect within the grey colouring.

Wood: Light Grey Dyed Sycamore & Maple
