These Keepsake boxes all feature hand cut, marquetry lids with unique pictures and patterns. The box itself is made from solid Tasmanian Oak and the inside base is lined with charcoal coloured felt. The base of the box has felt pads to protect surfaces. The lids feature marquetry, which is the technique of using real timber veneers to create pictures or patterns that can be applied to almost anything. These pieces use real timber veneers such as, Tasmanian and Australian Oak, American Walnut, Rock Maple, Bubinga and several dyed timbers. The lids have a recessed edge on the under side that locates it into the box.
This piece features the familiar Lois Cube pattern. Using three different timbers, Tasmanian Oak, American Walnut and Rock Maple, and cutting them into 60degree diamonds, you can create this 3-dimensional effect. Perfect for those who prefer a more geometric style, while still having the natural warmth of timber.
