Spalted Pecan Keepsake Box

 

Completed: November 2017

 

This is a keepsake box made of spalted pecan with spalted maple splines. The walls on this box are right at 3/8” which really lends itself to the display quality of the box, from the top of the box disappears and the contents take center stage. The wood has enough character to take center stage alongside the decorative clasp when viewed from the front, back, or sides. The splines which are made of spalted maple are installed primarily for strengthening the miter joints, but I choose the spalted maple in hopes that it would blend in enough to provide a nice accent without taking away from the materials used in the box. The splines blended in so well, that they would have to be pointed out for most people. The lid has a Lexan insert so that the contents can be clearly seen without fear of glass breaking. I am very pleased with this box
