LIGHTHOUSE SHAPED JEWELLERY BOX
LIGHTHOUSE SHAPED JEWELLERY BOX.
This is a handmade wood turned Jewellery/trinket box which is made from 5 different exotic woods. I was inspired by the many Lighthouses scattered around the beautiful Cornish coast and decided to turn this and other little boxes to represent a lighthouse. Each section has been cut and planed and then all sections are bonded together to form the rough shape of the finished item. It is then mounted onto my lathe and turned into this beautiful and unique storage box. None of the wood used in this item has been stained or coloured, it is all natural. Starting from the top, the woods used are Canadian Maple, Purpleheart, West African Padauk, Canadian Maple, West African Ovangko, American Cherry. The names of these woods has been burned into the base of the box. I have finished the box with a sealer, and multiple coats of beeswax and walnut oil which makes the colours in the wood more vibrant. The box can of course be used for storing anything that will fit inside, except liquids, and not just for jewellery.
