Special Oak Keepsake Box

Shared by TreeGems in the Wooden Crafts

Product Description:

The lid of this keepsake box or chest is made from an amazing piece of burr oak that has lived in my workshop for quite some time. It was too beautiful to cut down in size, so this box is a big one! The lid retains its natural bark edging. Internally, the box measures 12" x 8 3/4" x 7" and it will easily accept A4 documents. The body of the box is made of nicely figured oak jointed with graduated through dovetails. I made the hinge from a piece of quarter-sawn oak which clearly displays its distinctive markings.

It is fitted with one partitioned tray of about 1 1/2" depth, made from figured sycamore.

Both the tray and the base of the box are lined with deep purple velvet.

Wedding Anniversaries?

It’s worth remembering that wood is the traditional gift for a fifth wedding anniversary, as well as being the modern gift for a sixth wedding anniversary!
