Boxes

I think the title is rather self explanatory.  Someone is gonna say I am being tacky saying that but I can't help myself.  But what I will be placing here for your perusal are primarily salt and spice boxes.  Now these may also be used for herbs and teas as well.  You will find these useful whether you are a professional chef or the chief cook in the house.  So take a look and I bet you will find something you really like.

There is something special and unique about a spice box that has natural edge on one side and not the other.  The natural colors of this wood make it really outstanding looking along with some spalting lines.  With this particular piece I could not make up my mind whether to say it was winged or not, and decided against it.  For whatever reason I decided that would make the title of the piece too long.  Anyway, you will find that the vessel part holds ¾ cup of whatever you put in it.  Some will use it for salts, herbs and even teas.   The length of the piece is 5 ¾” with a width of 4 ¾”.  The total height is 3 ¾” and the vessel height is 2”.  The vessel depth is 1 ½”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and the finishing was done with shellac with some walnut oil based wax mixed in.  Using these ingredients gives the box a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  28May20  BXCE5  $32.50 and $4.00 S&H  Price for shipping listed is for the lower Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping cost.

Now, how about this!?!  A truly unique shaped box for your goodies or treasures.  Basic shape is like a flying saucer, with the interior hollowed out also making this a hollow form piece.  Wasn’t sure just which category to put it in so I decided on boxes.  Turned from truly magnificent pecan wood, this piece has everything that would make a rustic fan happy.  You have some worm holes, you have natural edge, you have spalting, and even a knot hole or two.  Just doesn’t get any better than this.  This box holds a nice amount of 3 cups.  The outside measures 8 ½” and the inside lip is 2 ¾”.  The total height is 5” and the vessel height is 3 1/4”.  The depth of the vessel is 2 ¾”.  The hollowing of the interior follows the exterior fairly well.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil and shellac mixture.  A combination such as this gives the box a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  26Mar19  BXP98  $42.50  Free shipping within Continental United States.
