This unique hand-crafted Treasure Box is one of my favourite things to make, because it shows off the grain and beauty of the reclaimed wood, and also has the mystery of the little hidden away drawers. It is a decorative item in itself – a real talking point as to how it is made, but it can also be used to hide away those special treasures, be they a favourite ring, or ear-ring, or coin, or teeth from the tooth fairy, or some other keepsake.

I use reclaimed wood to make it - wood that would otherwise be burned or left to rot. I carefully select pieces for their colour and grain, and leave them to season for several years. I then hand work them into the item you see, which is then sealed and wax polished.

This piece of Yew has beautiful markings, with the deep orange heart wood contrasting superbly with the almost white sap wood. You can even work out how old the branch was by counting the annual rings in the end grain!
