Celtic Tree of Life version 1
This keepsake box is handmade by the artist J Daniel and is multipurpose allowing it to be used for many things. It is comprised of three different woods. Mulberry, Maple, and Walnut. The art is 2D carved on the front and 2.5D relief carving on the top for decorative beauty. Handmade Wood Hinges are used on this box.
The hinges are hand made wood hinges out of Maple and are quite durable. There is no mechanical closure, instead a dual magnet closer is used on the inside front edge of the box.
This boxes exterior dimensions are 5 7/8 inches wide, 4 3/16 inches deep, 3 3/8 inches high and the wood used is 3/8 inches thick with lid and base being slightly thicker. It is a small keepsake box weighing in at near 1 pound. The interior storage dimensions are 5 1/8 inches in width, 3 3/8 inches deep, 2 11/16 inches height.
The box was sealed with a latex UV protection and then in oil poly. The finish is not the slick glass feel that you often find in store bought furniture or boxes. No epoxies or other finishes were used in order to preserve the genuine wood feel in the touch of the fingers. It is solid hardwood from end to end, preserving that feel in the hands adds to its aesthetic beauty.
