This box is one of three which i am making at the moment, its just about complete i have a few things left to do, this box has been constructed to hold a bible around 1¼ inches by 1inch or smaller and has been made using English Oak that dates to around 1650 natural Bee's wax was used to enhance the grain and protect the box.
The Oak you see the piece stood on in the photo is the same timber i used to construct this piece.
The next two pieces will be slightly bigger in dimension and vary in design from one another, one will hold the bible and crucifix that was featured in my previous post.
A very warm welcome to my new followers,and many thanks for taking an interest in my journal.
Have a Great week everyone :)
