From the earliest times man has sought to store and protect his most precious things. Often placing them in boxes that concealed their contents. Others have enhanced the presentation of their fine objects by considering the style of their container.
Human fascination with boxes and our curiosity to peer inside has existed for millennia. The need to explore boxes has existed since before the ancient Greek myth of Pandora. Even children sometimes express more interest in playing with a box than the present contained within.
Boxes for You
Whether you have a complete idea of the fine box you require or just a vague notion for a unique gift and want to know the possibilities, I can help.
Fine boxes can be made for any purpose. Consider conventional styles or more unique designs, varieties of natural hardwoods and veneers. Using traditional hand-making and contemporary furniture making techniques your box will be realised.
To further understand the type of fine boxes and decorative boxes that are possible, please explore boxes through the categories on the menu. Each category explores a different purpose and includes fine boxes in many styles and with differing contents.
I have included information on the design process and the techniques used to create the fine boxes for your interest.
You can also review the natural materials used in the creation of these boxes. Hardwoods and veneers are available from many countries. Box liners are of silk or other materials a similar quality. Hardware for hinges and locks are of good quality metals.
