Often mimicked with stain or veneer, true walnut like this will have subtle color gradients that change and deepen with age. Keepsakes, memorabilia, or anything else you can think of can be stored and displayed in these.
The backing is black velvet over a hard plywood that can be screwed or pinned into, you can choose how you display your items in this box. Each corner is assembled using a miter with splines that add strength and a decorative flair. The door includes a clear acrylic window that won’t shatter if hit or dropped. The hinges and clasp are made of brass. Each box is finished in several coats of Tung oil which deepens the color, and protects the wood.
