Natural Topped Medio Style Box (#5245) in Dark Elm Burr

Blocks of Dark Elm Burr, as large as this, are very difficult to source. This is, therefore, a rare box.

One of my customers talked about liking the boxes I made with the “lumpy-bumpy” tops. She seemed to relish the fact that not everybody would like such a thing! This really is a ‘Marmite’ Box. I was sorely tempted to remove the ‘lumpy-bumpy’ top and use the exposed wood, you can now see on the inner lid, as the top of the box. I am still not sure I did the right thing. What do you think?

The inside is relatively simple – a deep tray, with a basket-like handle,  a deceptively deep hidey-hole and long shallow tray underneath.

Size:7″ x 4″ x 6″

There is no charge for an inscription on the base.
