Originally designed as apprentice exercises, these boxes have evolved into one of the favourites of our repeated works. They are made from a particular cut of the London plane tree. This cut is described as quarter-sawn and it produces the exotic delights seen here. It is then re-christened ‘lacewood’.
The opening of the pivot lid reveals an ash bottom. The pellets on the fronts of these boxes are made from Andorran padouk, which were found hidden at the back of a specialist timber supplier’s shop in 1979.
