Cocobolo, Red Heart, and Cherry

This is a 5 container box. 

Base is made from cherry. Base openings are undercut on the inside. Similar to the double box you will find earlier in my posts. 
Four outer ring lids are made from cocobolo. Center lid is Red Heart.  

Nice center piece for your hutch or desk.

Thanks for looking -Bill

The Purple Heart Sister box to the Bubinga Box

Purpleheart, Mahogany, and Hickory knot.
Finished natural with 14 coats of finish on lid and wet sanded to a high luster. 

Purpleheart inside tray with elliptical pattern dividers. 
storage underneath for larger items. 

Here they both are together. I made the purpleheart box the same time I did the bubinga one. just never finished it. Honestly I never really tried to sell these too hard before this last weekend. 

These can be purchased singly or as a pair. I would make deal on the two as I think they belong in the same home myself. 

These are still available but I don't think they will make it through the next craft fair coming up in Williams Bay at the end of July. They aren't that expensive but aren't that cheap either. email me and lets see if we can come together.

Thank you so very much. I really appreciate the letters. Keep them coming. -Bill

First tooth and hair curl box

This is a box inside a box theme. 
Black Walnut and Cherry.

Solid Brass hinges, with magnets for closure. 

Small containers for that very first tooth and first hair cut locks.
fully machined 3d lips on the base and bottoms of the inside lids.

The Wish Box

This is also made from Canary Wood Mahogany. This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches thick box. 
It features a small glass vial in a machined area containing  small wishbones and says wishes on it. 

There that vial is.

I made a few of these and have one left. You can have this one or I can make another one with your choice of materials or..... perhaps something unique for you? You tell me what you need.


Inspirational Tag Boxes

These small memento boxes are all made from black walnut. Lined with felt they measure 5 3/4 x 2 7/8 by 1 3/4 deep. 

Sayings include, "enjoy the journey", "live the life you imagined", "life is about creating yourself", "dream as if you'll live forever", "encourage your hopes and not your fears", "possibility begins with imagination", "capture lifes moments", "embrace imperfection", " reality has limits, imagination is boundless", "know in your heart you are loved", "the journey awakens the soul"

The embrace imperfection is the one that is mounted crooked. all others are aligned properly.

Thank you. -Bill

The Dragonfly

This was something new for me design wise. Thinking a bit different. I originally visualized this on a man's desk for pocket items. I felt this way because of the rugged look to the materials. After it was assembled though, I can see this hanging on the wall as a hiding place for something. 

I left the knot intentionally in that place because it is so nice. 

You're probably wondering what these woods are. Hickory, African Mahogany, and a purple heart strip. 

Pivots open in one direction, and closes when rotated the other.


Thank you for looking. I appreciate all the emails. -Bill

Compass CAM lock box

Everyone, meet Canary Wood! Canary Wood say hi to everyone!
It is a gorgeous wood. so many colors going on in here. This box features African mahogany, and Canary wood. Well and I guess some hard maple for the cam lock device. 

Finished in natural color with water based finishes. You can see the cam there one edge installed in the lid. 

Rotate the compass face on lid with fingers and cam engages and disengages in an undercut in the base of the box.  

I have these two available. It can be made from any species of wood(s) desired. 
Box measures 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 2 3/4 inch. 

email me please if you have an interest, 

Thank you -Bill

email me if you have interest in it or anything you may need. 

Thanks. -Bill
