Maple and Walnut Wood Jewelry Box
A simple, yet beautiful and finely crafted wood jewelry box created by talented furniture maker Jacques Breau of Ottawa, Ontario. As a woodworker using highly traditional techniques, Jacques builds pieces using a collection of lovingly restored hand tools dating back as far as 1915 and originating in Japan, Germany, the USA and Canada, as well as many shop-made items.
Story: “The basis for the design of this wood jewelry box was a sliding lid that travelled through the side of the box, leaving the top of the box uninterrupted. This design feature led me to use mitred dovetails for the corners. This is a slight variation on the traditional dovetail, and it allows the bevelling of the top edge of the box to run seamlessly all the way around the perimeter.”
Materials: This wood jewelry box is built from clear Eastern Maple & Claro Walnut
Dimensions: H 2.5’’ x L 10’’ x D 6.75’’
