KEEPSAKE BOXES and TEA CHEST’s

 

I wanted an antique feel for these boxes, so I opted for a classic design.  I love crown molding so I incorporated that element into the lids.  These boxes are made out of Claro Walnut (sides, top, and top trim), Oak bottoms, and African Black Wood for knobs and some side adornments  No 2 boxes are alike. 

 

The boxes can serve as either keepsake boxes or tea chests.  Design elements were paired with the uniqueness of each grain pattern, and lids were the dominating factor when pairing with the side pieces
