Collectors cabinet.

Hi everyone im still making lots of items for the interior of the wunderkammer roombox,this particular piece was made using reclaimed timber from some very small draws that i think came from a writing desk im unsure what the timber is but it has a beautiful patina and is good to work with.


The tiny sea shells were a gift from https://madnessmademurray.blogspot.com/ who has also recently used some in the construction of a mirror, many thanks Mrs M your gift of these little treasures is very much appreciated.


I will definitely be using some more of this timber to make some other items  as i would like lots of cabinets but in different woods and colors the shells in the above cabinet were mounted onto a material that lined the inside of a Victorian jewelry box which was beyond repair but has happily found a second life not only in this but hopefully in some other pieces too.
Have a great week everyone.

  6. Tony dear how wonderful ! puts my own efforts some time ago to shame ! I am happy that you found a way of using the shells. I KNEW you would love that little piece of coral when I put it in. Looking forward to the next treasure. The good thing about miniatures is that no matter how little time you have there is always somethign that can be done in that time. Thanks for the link !! huggss
