Description

 

Ash box with strap hinge lid, half blind dovetail joints with a single sliding upper tray and ample space underneath for all manner of things.

Size: 500 x 290 x 140mm

AshFraxinus excelsior

When fully grown, ash trees can grow to a height of 35m. Tall and graceful, they often grow together, forming a domed canopy. The bark is pale brown to grey, which fissures as the tree ages. Easily identified in winter by smooth twigs that have distinctively black, velvety leaf buds arranged opposite each other.

The ash tree was thought to have medicinal and mystical properties and the wood was burned to ward off evil spirits. In Norse Viking mythology, ash was referred to as the ‘Tree of Life’. Even today it is sometimes known as the ‘Venus of the woods’. In Britain we regarded ash as a healing tree and they can live to a grand old age of 400 years.

    It is ME who has purchased this box and all I can say is that I am absolutely delighted. It is EXACTLY what I wanted. The quality of the wood and the quality of the workmanship are second to none.

    I have been hunting for a box like this for a little while (I even bought another one) but I didn’t find anything remotely close to the quality of what Neil has produced here.

    Top marks Neil!
