A stunning one-of-a-kind handmade hardwood jewellery or keepsake box, made from Idigbo and Walnut with a contrasting Oak and blue resin lid.
The lid is made from a lovely piece of Oak with a beautiful feature split filled with transparent blue resin. The box is then finished in a gloss hardwearing oil. The interior of the box is lined in a lovely blue suede.
The contrast of the beautiful golden colour of the second life Idigbo and the dark Walnut is beautiful. The addition of the stunning Oak and resin lid makes this a really special item.
This box measures approximately 24.8 x 15.5 x 6.2 cm
Whenever possible in Lifetimber products I use second life timber, that is timber that has had a previous life as something else, is reclaimed or salvaged or often was waste or offcuts from another project or woodworker. Most of the wood that I use is reclaimed or offcut hardwoods that are naturally slow growing. This timber is always beautiful and often has character that means it was hard for others to use. I always work with the natural beauty of the wood, highlighting, celebrating and enhancing the natural flaws, knots and patina.
The core philosophy of Lifetimber’s process is to minimise waste: I try to make use of every ounce of wood that comes into my workshop, even the sawdust! By considering a Lifetimber product, you will be helping rescue gorgeous wood from an ignominious end.
Obviously, wood is a natural product and Lifetimber celebrates that: if you are looking for conformity, repeatability and laser cut precision then you are probably looking at the wrong product…. but you have read this far! I therefore encourage you to consider a unique Lifetimber product for all the beauty and joy that it will bring.
If you like what you see and have read, but are after a bespoke commission or customised product, then please get in contact with your requirements and I will see what I can do!
