We call them Trinket Boxes but they can be used for just about anything, like: sewing, jewellery, buttons, seeds and a hundred other things we haven’t even thought of. They are small enough to be carried round but large enough to fit a multitude of those essential bits and pieces. Most have a carry handle and front clasp as they are designed to be mobile; unlike a traditional jewellery box that tends to sit on a dresser or chest of drawers.
The interior of the boxes are fitted out with smaller compartments and, in some cases, removable trays. A variety of different wood types are used but, as always, we prefer to use recycled or scrap timber plus mill off-cuts and flitches. All the boxes are finished with Boiled Linseed Oil and our own recipe Beeswax Polish to give a natural look; the interiors are not coated at all as any finish could potentially affect the contents.
There is a gallery of images (below) with some of the boxes we have made. To view our current range head on over to our Etsy online store.
