¬†Jewelry Box – “Valentine”

Spalted European Cherry
Solid Brass Hinges and Lock
Hand-Rubbed Wax Finish
8″ x 11″ x 4.5″

Inspired by a similar jewelry box built by James Krenov, this piece was commissioned by a client as an heirloom gift. The spalting (literally, rotting) in the wood creates a visual effect that through careful planning encircles the box and is mirrored in the interior. A removable, sliding tray provides additional storage space, and a brass locking mechanism keeps the contents secure.

Price to reproduce as shown, $1,200.
