I put a lot of love and care into these and there is only a limited supply of the recycled fence post timber.

Petite boxes from beautiful old Australian timber. New life for very old grey timber that has been in the ground for over 50 years. I still love cutting the post for the first time to reveal the unique redgum grain beneath as I dream up ways I can put it to best use.  Timber needs to be respected and treasured, not left to rot away as an old fence post. 

Finished by hand with vintage Australian planes and hand tools

  • Sustainable reclaimed or salvaged timber
  • Beautifully finished with natural oils and waxes or Shellac (if Vegan please ask)
  • Great for last minute gift ideas! – Mother’s Day, Birthday’s, Father’s Day

CYCLONE YASI BOX – Flat Lid (pictured above)
Your chance to own a rare piece of Australian history…
The latest redgum box has a little bit of a story behind it so here are the details for those interested.

  • Top lid is Zebra wood from coastal areas of QLD (or it could be olive wood not sure of species) Trees rescued from waterways after council cleanup from cyclone Yasi which devastated the area on 3rd February 2011.
  • Redgum is a recycled fence post from a driveway in Clayton Victoria.
  • Interior lid is Cedar (offcuts from my signs) base interior is Tasmanian Oak (or Victorian Ash)
  • Handcrafted entirely from wood including tapered wooden peg joinery and hinge pins, They are known as Japanese nails, very strong due to their tapered design and made from solid Beach.
  • Finished with a natural oil and wax blend. (smells fantastic!)
  • Polished with Traditional wax (can be reapplied over the life of the box if needed) Recommended brand is Ubeaut Australian Made. http://www.ubeaut.com.au/trad.html
  • Limited supply of timber for these but I have enough to make one or two more!
