English walnut jewellery box - 'big sister'

A couple of years ago, I purchased a plank of English walnut from someone who was selling off some of his stock. I could see the wood had a wonderful grain pattern, and could be made into something special.​

The grain pattern in the timber was wild, and areas of light sapwood gave interesting contrasts and features that helped me in the design of this jewellery box. I used the swirl pattern and grain direction in the design of the lid and handle.​

The box has three removable trays, each tray having a different combination of dividing compartments. The trays and the box are lined with purple suede.​

I called this box ‘big sister’, as there was enough timber to make another 'little sister' jewellery box.

Materials: English walnut and ash, with an oil and wax finish. Suede linings.​

Size: 120mm (h) x 300mm (w) x 200mm (d).

Price: Sold.
