     These Keepsake boxes all feature hand cut, marquetry lids with unique pictures and patterns. The box itself is made from solid Tasmanian Oak and the inside base is lined with charcoal coloured felt. The base of the box has felt pads to protect surfaces. The lids feature marquetry, which is the technique of using real timber veneers to create pictures or patterns. These pieces use real timber veneers such as, Tasmanian and Australian Oak, American Walnut, Rock Maple, Bubinga and several dyed timbers. The lids have a recessed edge on the under side that locates it into the box. 
     This piece features a Rose head in full bloom. I’ve used a sand shading technique here, which delicately burns the edges of a piece you’re inserting into the picture. The petals here are all from the same timber, but the shading adds depth and shadow.
