Box Handmade in Australian Oak and Queensland Walnut by Chris Busby

Item # CB105

A stunning combination of timbers, beautiful Australian Oak with a lid panel in Queensland walnut.

The decorative corner keys and lid handle are in Queensland Walnut. Corner keys add strength to the mitre joint as well as adding an attractive visual feature.

The solid brass mortised butt hinges (imported from the USA) feature a built-in stop that allows the lid to remain open at 95°.

The inner base is lined with navy blue velvet. Its measurements are 245 x 150 x 75 mm high.

The box has been hand-finished using Danish oil and Carnauba wax.

Queensland Walnut (Endiandra palmerstonii)

A large rainforest tree from Northern Queensland. Despite its name, colour and appearance, it bears little botanical relation to the true walnuts of Europe and North America.

Due to its similarity in appearance to English Walnut, early settlers gave it a common name after a species they were familiar with.
