Blue Boar Woodworking


Loose lid jewellery boxes



All our boxes are hand made. They are made to similar construction method but not to a standard size. Indeed, the size is often selected by the available wood.

All our boxes are made from solid wood with the exception of the base which is ply wood. We do not use MDF in any of our boxes.

Quite often a blemish in an otherwise plain piece of timber is used as a feature of the box rather than trying to remove out all the blemishes.

All boxes are supplied with an optional extra of a baize lining on the inside base at an additional cost of £ 10.00. Baize can be supplied in Red, Green or Blue.

All boxes are individually sized and priced. Sizes (measured to the nearest quarter inch) are given in the text with each box.

Purchases are normally despatched in 2 or 3 working days from the date of payment. Normally despatched by courier.
