About Our Products
We make bowls, humidors, jewelry boxes, business card boxes, boxes to put engagement and wedding rings in, cigarette boxes, boxes to put lipstick in, boxes to put the junk that accumulates by your nightstand in, boxes for the Burton-Taylor diamond, and especially boxes to put other boxes in (set of four boxes, the smallest of which is only half an inch long.)
We are very picky about sanding. We sand boxes up to 400 grit. Boxes are then finished with shellac. We mix the shellac with pure cane alcohol, and apply it in coats as modified ‘French rub finish.’ Then they are polished and finished with a coat of wax. The result is a very satiny, semi-gloss finish. Our finishes and solvents are natural and non-toxic. Bowls: bowls are sanded up to 500 grit, sometimes 700 grit.
We use dovetail joinery, spline miter joinery and glue to put together the boxes. No nails, no screws, no ‘biscuits’.
