This jewellery box is made from poplar burr wood veneer that wraps around the box, given the effect of the grain pattern flowing over the surface.
Inside the box are two lift out jewellery storage trays, one divided into 5×3 compartments and the other into 3×3 compartments. The trays are made from beech and have an eye-catching fumed oak ‘mitre-key’ on the tray corners.
The box and the trays are lined with aubergine coloured faux suede material.
The dimensions of the box are: 320mm wide x 190mm deep x 140mm high.
A hard wax oil and application of bee’s wax is used to finish the box, giving a very smooth satin matt sheen.

No special care is required, just dust with a soft cloth. Never use a spray on furniture polish.
Normally poplar burr has more of the brown spots across the surface (i.e. the ‘burr’), but when I saw this veneer I was instantly attracted by the grouping of these spots and the ‘negative space’ created between them. Additionally, the grain pattern of this ‘negative space’ looked amazing and had a great visual depth.
I had this idea in my head that I could position the ‘negative space’ on the lid of the box and then flow the grain around the box surface. The brown spot burr patterns would then wrap over the edges of the box.
It to a lot of planning and working out how to get a flat sheet to wrap over a three-dimensional object in the most effective and efficient way – this veneer is too special, and I didn’t want to waste it unnecessary.
The result I feel looks very pleasing, but it is just impossible to show the depth and how the grain pattern reflects the light in a photograph.
