     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. 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 beautiful Robin Red Breast. I’ve used a burl figured red timber here to capture the most prominent feature of this bird. Burl timber veneers are cut from the large knoll like bulges you sometimes see on the side of a tree trunk. Because the grain runs in no particular direction like you find on a trunk or branch, you get these stunning shimmering patterns.
