Art or function? This style is based on a Japanese tool box that was made for hundreds of years. In a smaller scale it makes a dramatic impact as the locking mechanism is a piece of cherry that slides out to permit the top to slide to the side slightly to enable one to lift it out. The connections are snug on this unique treasure.
To look at it one might not guess that it also can store precious items. However, it might just serve well as an eye catching work of art on your shelf or table. Any who notice it will pick it up and wonder how to open it.
The box features walnut as the dominant wood with a cherry locking mechanism and padauk cross pieces on the top and ends.
The boxes from Daily Zen Woodcraft are hand-finished with a simple blend of beeswax, Brazilian carnauba wax, mineral oil, and orange oil to enhance the natural beauty and depth of grain in all the wood.
