Many people think this box looks like a canoe or kayak, but my inspiration for The Leaf Box was that of the leaf of the ‘narrow-leaf cottonwood’ tree found near rivers and streams near where I live in the rocky mountains. The delicate book-matched lid lifts up and is sculpted by hand to make it appear thinner than it really is. The interior of the box is lined with genuine Ultrasuede. I finish each piece with 2 coats of lacquer followed by a top coat of paste wax hand applied with ‘0000? steel wool to enhance the natural beauty of the exquisite exotic hardwoods. The Leaf box is appropriate for watches, pens, necklaces, or whatever other collectible/keepsake you can think of. Also, makes a great fifth anniversary gift.
