This beautiful Oak jewellery chest was made to commissioned order for a client with only a few specific requirements given by telephone and email.The thing I enjoyed most about the commission was the relatively free hand I was given in it's design. The client gave me a few general instructions, such as outer dimensions wood type the need for one lift out tray and one drawer, but the rest was left up to me. I decided that instead of having a drawer in the box front, I would give it a drop down face which the drawer would sit behind. I edge banded the lid with Sapele for an effective contrast against the white Oak . This was then routed to give decorative contours to the banding, also having the effect of removing some of the square edging from the chest. The box is fitted with high quality "NEAT LOCK & HINGES", and the interior lined with a green faux suede.
All in all the reaction of the client was one of great delight, which gives me the utmost satisfaction as it is of paramount importance to me as a craftsman.
