These are 100% handcrafted salt boxes made in my NJ wood shop. Made without the use of a CNC machine each of these is a one of a kind piece of bespoke functional kitchen decor. They are assembled using box joints and have hidden solid brass hinges. Every salt box will have some slight imperfections or variations in the color/grain of the walnut but each is completely functional and durable for daily use.
Made to store salt, or really any dry ingredient they can also be used to keepsake boxes for jewelry, coins, special items, or even a gift box for something really special.
Cut out of a single solid piece of face grain hardwood. Face grain allows for durability while showing off the beautiful natural figure of the wood. And assembled using box joints at each corner.
American Black Walnut grows commonly in North America. Considered a premium hardwood because of availability, demand, and wide variety of highly figured grain patterns. Walnut is rarely uniform in color and will often have streaks of different colored grains.
Finished in a good safe oil and wax
Each of these are made to order, they typically will ship in 1-2 weeks. If you need it sooner, need to place a bulk order, or have additional questions please feel free to contact us. The box pictured is an example, each will have unique variations in grain and color.
Our products are handmade in our shop using some the best locally purchased domestic and exotic hardwoods. All wood is professionally kiln dried ensuring the ideal moisture level to prevent warping and cracking.
Each is 100% food safe, never using any dye or stain and only high-quality food safe glues and finished with food safe oils to protect the wood as well as brings out the natural luster and beauty of each species of wood used. Finally, a coat of beeswax is applied to further protect the wood.
Before shipping one last treatment is applied to ensure it is ready for use the moment you open your box. Our wood products are also shipped with care instructions, if properly cared for each will be an heirloom piece that can last generations. Our blend of mineral oil and beeswax used to treat all of our products is also available in our store.
We’re extremely proud of each piece we create, and love seeing them in the hands of others. We know you’ll love it too. But, if for any reason you’re not happy with your purchase we will happy to accept returns within 7 days of receiving it as long as it is unused, less the cost of shipping.
