After working with wood for many years, I was initially unprepared for the stringent design and build requirements necessary to create a wood box that could meet esthetic expectations. I”m still never completely satisfied with a new piece, but I guess that’s a good thing.
Represented here are just a few examples of construction details common to many of my boxes. Boxes are normally finished with several coats of lacquer and hand rubbed for a satin finish. Hinges are solid brass, and many have built in stops to hold the lid in an upright position.
