Fine Wooden Keepsake Boxes
This box is all made from an ornamental Cherry tree that was rescued from a neighbors yard with a Box Elder top panel and keys. Being a type of Cherry, the box will darken with age and sunlight. The red on the box elder may fade if left in the sun. The dimensions areapprox. 5 3/4"x3 3/4"x3" tall. It is finished inside and out with a coat of drying oil. The outside of the body and the entire lid are French polished with shelac. The whole box was then buffed with a coat of Canuba wax. Hinges are made by Brusso and allow the box to be opened 180*.. The liner is a synthetic suede and will not tarnish silver.
