Driftwood Box

This special little box was created for a very special someone. It’s intended use – to hold whatever special or memorable  items its user desires.

We looked at the shape of cigar boxes, deciding that they were about the right size and application for holding unique and cherished items. We decided on a new material (pine) for the inside, and found material (a spalted driftwood) for the exterior to give it a unique look.

As for the details, we used a silver piano hinge for the lid, and a recycled leather strip fitted into a dado to strap it closed. The result? A beautiful and one-of-a-kind piece that will be cherished forever.
