Contained within this box will be the antique miniature bible,the crucifix and the ivory drinking vessel. Once complete it will also have a draw and a secret compartment .
This piece has been constructed using the same timber as i used for the bible box in my previous post.A final polish with natural bee's wax protects the wood.All that remains for me to complete on this piece of work is the draw and secret draw inside and the lid for the box itself. I'm still making plans in my head for the third bible box that i have been asked to make although made primarily of oak as this one and the first has been i also have some antique olive wood which i would like to try and incorporate into the design somewhere.On a final note id just like to say a warm welcome to my new followers and many thanks for following my journal.
Have a great week everyone. Tony.
