Grande Style Box (#5239) in Pippy Oak
Pippy Oak, (sometimes called Tiger’s Paw oak ) is one of my favourite woods, but very difficult to source, particularly if the figuring is as eye-catching as it is here. Providing it is very dry, this sort of oak is easy to work on my long suffering bandsaw.
One of the many distinctive features of this particular box is the tray and drawer which, when lifted out, allows the ‘secret’ drawer on the lower level to be withdrawn. Note how I have kept the ‘Tiger’s Paw’ figuring in the triangular lifter and created a useful little tray for use outside the box.
Size: 8.5″ x 4″ approx.
There is no charge for inscriptions on the base.
