2 Watch Box in Maple Burr & Smoked Chestnut Detail

A small Maple Burr 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 rich golden tan Maple burr veneer. Darker tan and brown swirls enhance this burr. Additionally, the edges of the box are a creamy-white hard maple. These are inlaid with double lines of a very dark brown smoked Chestnut which contrast well with the rich Maple burr.

A soft sheepskin suede in dark Brown, lines the interior of the box, picking up the detail of the inlays against the exterior colour of the Maple Burr watch box. Two sections are provided for the watches, each with a suede covered cushion. Similarly, the luxurious suede also lines the hard maple tray. As the tray is suspended in the front compartment, this results in there being plenty of usable space underneath.

Brass stopped hinges and a brass lock are fitted to the box.  The key hole is surrounded with an escutcheon inlaid with smoked Chestnut.

Finally the box is finished with a low sheen lacquer.

This kind of Maple burr normally has a high density of burl likewise many pockets of ingrown bark,  subsequently giving an interesting pattern with a rich colour.
