Watch presentation box

While we normally turn our skills to furniture, we’re always happy to take on new challenges and one recent commission let us indulge in a spot of box-making.

A watch collector in Northamptonshire had a special birthday coming up, so we were contacted by his wife to create a special case to store his collection in.

We selected a few nice pieces of walnut, utilising a lighter sap wood and offsetting it against darker stripes which created a simple yet stunning design. The hand cut joints on each corner show off the craftsmanship involved and the method of joining the base casts a shadow under the box giving it the illusion of floating. To display his watches we turned a length of ash for them to slide onto.

We fitted the box with polished chrome hinges and clasp to compliment the dark timber and then inlayed a small handle made from 3,000 year old bog oak. See more here
