I’m sure we all have had the experience of our own, or another’s kid or pet playing for hours with the cardboard box that held their gift.
But right now, I am talking about a different box. These are handcrafted wood boxes we offer for sale at WoodnWhimsey. The line is called Premium Boxes by JC and represents our exotic wood boxes handcrafted by an experienced furniture and cabinet maker. And these boxes would also make a great Christmas Gift!
The swirly grained box in the fore is a Bubinga, natural, splined latch top box.
On the Bottom shelf left to right are: a latch top 4 spline black walnut, then small trinket, beheld that a two drawer black walnut. On the shelf above are, the pull-top boxes in walnut, Bubinga and behind then a plain latch top without splines and then a three spline both in Bubinga
There are currently over fifty different boxes available, and they represent a year of steady craftsmanship by John here and in Ireland. He was only able to source for “Malaysian Walnut” in Ireland, and we only have a few of that wood in the collection. I will try to break them down into style and tye for you.
Originally John started out making from old dressing table drawers but then expanded into handcrafting his own.

The box shown here is made from walnut. Our naturals stress the beauty of the raw wood; its grain and patterns are the main focus in our exotic wood selections. This box is made to show the beauty of the wood grain.
