Huon Pine and Cedar Box
A oriental influenced box with a cedar top and base and a huon pine body
Elegant Lidded Box
This elegant box was turned and carved from Western Australian Jarrah and New Zealand Rimu. The Jarrah was highly figured and contained some veins of sap. The sap veins were carved out of the base to make the veins in the "leaves" of the base. See the close-up of the base. The piece was finished with oil and wax with the base being quite dull and the top highly polished.
Elegant Box Base
This is the Jarrah base of the elegant box. It shows the sap vein that was present in the block of timber. Rather than throw the block away, the sap vein was positioned to be the central vein in one of the leaves of the base. The base was finished with three coats of Danish Oil.
Huon Pine and Rosewood Box
This very large (500mm) Huon Pine and Rosewood lidded box was commissioned by a work college to take with him on his return to Japan. The base is in two sections and each section can be moved to produce an infinite number of profiles. The Huon Pine body and Rosewood lid are finished with wax. the base is finished with Danish Oil.
Carved Rosewood Base
This is one of the bases of the Huon Pine and Rosewood lidded box. It has been turned and then hand carved to produce a "tulip" like profile.
Carved Rosewood Base of leaves
This is the second base for the Huon Pine and Rosewood lidded box. It has two sections. each has been turned and then hand carved to produce the "nesting leaves" effect.
Rosewood Box top
This Rosewood top has an oriental influence. finished with commercial turning wax.
