Only the highest quality, solid hardwoods - no veneers - are used for your treasure box. I personally select every board from a local lumber supplier - an 80-years successful, family-run business. Impeccable quality. Great people.
Traditional, artisanal methods of construction - floating panels, mortise and tenon joinery, splined miters - are employed to ensure your box's integrity and long life. I do all the work myself (but would welcome volunteers to sand).
Your box's finish - hand-applied oil and wax - accentuates the wood's grain, deepens its color and tone, and results in a satin finish that begs to be touched.
My home-based shop is located on Cape Cod. Like many businesses, mine started in a garage. Unlike many, it will remain in one.
