catalog #: 607

height: 13" wide x 10" deep x 5" high

principal wood: maple

accent woods: walnut

comments:    This box differs from box #606 only by substitution of different woods for the component parts. Construction equally simple, appearance markedly changed! All four of the treasure boxes currently shown in the gallery were constructed using a unique, easily accessible technique called  bird mouth joinery. This joyful quartet demonstrates how refashioning a simple concept can quietly deliver a wide artistic design spectrum. The hardware include a sturdy brass latch and a piano hinge, accompanying the black velvet bottom lining.
