Hand crafted in our own woodworking shop at Sweetpea Cottage, this curly white oak dresser box is a one-of-a-kind treat for someone special. Crafted like a piece of fine furniture and elegantly styled, it is capped with a gorgeous polished stone cabochon. The box has been entirely made from extremely rare quartersawn curly white oak emphasizing the beautiful crazy grain and color of the wood. This wood is most unusual, hard to obtain, and absolutely spectacular in appearance. It has been styled like the dresser boxes, dressing table trays, or jewelry boxes, that were commonly made during the Arts and Crafts era. The mitered lid peaks in the middle where the cabochon sits proud of the lid. The oak has a golden-brown color that will continue to enrich with age. For ease of access the lid is not hinged but lifts straight up and reveals a piece of birds-eye maple that presents a wonderful surprise to anybody curious enough to open the box. The bottom of the inside has been covered with green anti-tarnish pacific cloth to keep your silver bright and shiny. There is one small blemish on the lid that is a result of the wild grain pattern in the wood. The final photo shows the blemished area. Because of this, the box has been priced accordingly. We can assure you, however, that this natural blemish will not interfere with your enjoyment in owning this wonderful piece of hand-crafted artisan woodwork.
The box dimensions are about 6 inches long and about 5 inches wide. The total height is 3 3/4 inches, with the body of the box standing 3 1/4 inches tall. The wood has been treated with a Danish oil, then finished with several coats of a polyurethane/oil finish, and finally hand-rubbed with high quality wax.
