Black Walnut hourglass with curly maple inlay


This hour glass shaped box is turned from black walnut box (Juglans nigra) and features inlay in the lid made from a nicely figured piece of hard maple (Acer saccharum). The inlay is framed by a bead and ring of texturing on the outside, while texturing on both the bottom and inside of the lid provide a little surprise when the box is opened or handled. A simple kerf decorates the seam between the lid and the base without disrupting the lines of the form. Finished with an oil-varnish blend, and buffed to a satin sheen, this box feels as good as it looks. The perfect place to store your most precious jewellery or keepsakes
