Tumbling Blocks Keepsake Box
Classic American quilting patterns reborn in marquetry woodwork.
The illusion of three dimensional tumbling blocks either rising or falling, depending on your perspective, cover the lid of this box.
An FSC certified birch box is carefully covered with a spectacular veneer of Emberwood with Japanese ash and Wenge for accents. Using veneers allows for the least wasteful use of these precious woods - they are generally the left overs from furniture makers. The veneers are highly polished and remain unstained to bring out the natural luster of each type of wood. A small brass peg allows for easy opening with brass hinges at the rear.
Box measures 6" square by 3" tall, is lined with a felt insert and has a wool felt bottom to protect your counter and the box for years of use and enjoyment. Weighs one pound, 2 ounces.
