Keepsake Box in Black Limba, Hand Carved Lid in Walnut


This keepsake box is perfect for storing items such as jewelry and sentimental items, as a valet, or even as a gift in itself.

The main box is built from Black Limba, a golden and dark brown, exotic African wood species with black streaks and straight grain. The lid, base and splines are Walnut wood, a naturally dark brown, durable domestic hardwood (and by the way, my absolute favorite wood to work with). The lid of the box is hand carved in a linear pattern, radial to the center, forming a deep circular cut.

The box bottom is lined with a blue and white Japanese Tenugui cloth in the Asa-No-Ha pattern. This geometric pattern is representative of a hemp leaf, symbolic of growth and good health.

The box is finished with a hand rubbed, durable natural oil and wax blend, free of toxins and VOC’s, that leaves a beautiful sheen with a pleasing natural touch to the wood.

Exterior Dimensions: 3-3/4” long X 3-3/4” wide X 2-7/8 tall
Interior Dimensions: 3-1/8" long X 3-1/8" wide X 1-7/8" tall

I love my craft! And it shows in my work. All of my pieces are handmade by me, one by one, with the highest level of craftsmanship and materials. They are pieces of fine woodworking that can last a lifetime and be handed down from generation to generation.

One last thing, I do custom work! If you see something in my shop that you like, but need it in a different size or wood species, please don’t hesitate to reach out and send me a message, I’d gladly custom make you something that fits your specific needs.
