Sculpted Quilted Maple Box / Lined / Birch Pin Joinery
If you're looking for a gorgeous one of a kind item, look no longer. This handmade, hand-sculpted box was made from Pacific quilted maple wood and displays deep bands of shimmering grain.
The top is a partial "live edge" piece where the bark met the interior of the tree. We emphasized the shape of the live edge and sculpted the entire box by hand to mimic the wavy edge.
The corners are 45° cuts joined and pinned with white birch pins. The bottom of the exterior of the box is channel set baltic birch and features skid-proof feet.
The interior of the box is padded and lined in a rich crushed forest green velvet. The box opens by a recessed antiqued brass, 8" stop hinge.
The entire piece has been sanded to 1200 grit smooth and protected with several coats of both premium quality furniture wax and crystal clear shellac.
The box measures 12 5/16" wide, 7 7/8" deep and 7 13/16" tall from foot to lid top.
