Birthday present commission
This is a small sized valet box in quarter cut European Oak that I’d recently delivered to a client for her boyfriend’s 30th birthday. It’s approximately 320 x 145 x 75 mm and designed to hold cufflinks and a watch.
The lid has a panel inset in Pippy Oak with contrasting initials in Walnut. The panel and the lid have been delineated by a Walnut line running around each..
The interior of the box is has been lightly polished to give a smooth feel. The box contains compartments for cufflinks with a larger one for a watch in this case.
A light glossy finish in shellac and a brass catch completes the box.
