This glorious solid hardwood box by Lifetimber features an oak burr with turquoise pearlescent resin lid. The box is lined in a high quality brown suede leather.
It measures 266mm (L) x 168mm (D) x 145mm (H) externally.
A one-of-a-kind handmade hardwood box would be perfect as a valet, jewellery or keepsake box.
The top is made from a lovely piece of burr oak with glorious blue/turquoise river across the lid. It is then finished in a gloss hardwearing oil. The interior of the box is lined in a lovely brown suede and features high quality chrome hinges that hold the lid open (at 95 degrees) when it is being used.
The wood that this box is made from remains of a beautiful old table that we rescued from one of the lovely old house near our workshop. It was in badly damaged and missing large sections so sadly unusable. Given the likely age of the table (100+ years ) there is a good chance that it is true mahogany, but in reality it could be one of the many gorgeous tropical hardwoods that were in common use back then. Regardless of the actual identity of the wood, it is stunning and far to beautiful to be allowed an ignominious end. I make all of our boxes in our Wiltshire based workshop, all of our products are made to last using high quality joinery that adds to both the tactile joy and visual appeal of our pieces. We are passionate about making sure we do things the Lifetimber way, celebrating the wood we use, careful sourcing of our reclaimed and second life wood and minimising waste at every stage of the process.
