Selecting the Materials for a Fine Box
Some hardwoods are kept in stock and are usually available immediately, others may need to be acquired and seasoned before use. Depending upon the wood, this may impact the time taken to complete the commission.
Feel free to explore some of the hardwoods, natural veneers and lining materials available.
Making a Fine Box
Necessary contents such as smaller boxes, trays or drawers are then made and fitted. Your fine handmade box might then be lined with an exquisite fabric or a contrasting timber as required.
Any external decoration such as marquetry may be applied to the box and then completed with an appropriate finish and polish.
Traditional hand-making and contemporary furniture making will give you an insight into how the boxes are made.
