and so - The start of this obsession. Box number one.
Lift out tray
A look inside
The completed project.
My first attempt at box making, for my daughter on her birthday in 1999. A simple jewellery box with a lift out tray made entirely from Swiss Pear. My first book - “Box Making Basics by David Freedman” together with a box made by my friend Charles Hepburn was the inspiration and start to this obsession. I have subsequently purchased every available book on box making I could find.
For Bronwyn Power on her birthday in 1999.
