It took me forever to settle on this pretty little six inch square jewelry box. That's because every box in the J. Amberg Furniture Maker shop begs to be shown. The slogan there is "What can I make for you?" Which I take to mean you can request custom and furniture. The ready-made boxes available in the shop are all beautifully constructed from reclaimed or recycled woods. And there's a good selection to choose from if is your thing: Rosewood, Red Milkwood, Poplar, Yellowheart, Zebrawood, Ziracote, Padauk, to name just a few.
Like many J. Amberg boxes, this one combines several different woods. It has a Bocote wood top with its beautifully patterned grain, silky Achihua wood body and legs, and details (drawer pulls and accents) of Ziracote, Cocabolo, and Paduak. This interesting mix of woods adds to the appeal of this very simple, Asian feeling style. The surface has been finished with coats of hand rubbed polyurethane and beeswax to polish and protect the wood. This is a true heirloom quality piece of fine craftsmanship. So click on over now and check out this beautifully crafted J. Amberg wood box. It's on sale for $110.
