An Oak chest, designed to hold ancestral research proving the customer's Viking heritage.
John's Morris Box
Made as a gift for a friend who greatly appreciated my artwork. I designed this around three elements of his personal persona - Celtic re-enactment, playing 9-Men Morris, and enjoying fine Scotch. The game board slides out and rests in the open box lid. Woodburned in Oak, padded and lined with deerskin.
Created by combining four of my regular sconces and adding steel "chainmail" links for hanging. This piece is now gracing someone's dining room in Texas. Maple.
My Morris Box
I had to keep this one. Carved entirely in Oak, the interior is padded and lined in Satin to protect the ceramic tankards within. The underside of the lid has both a 9-Men Morris game and Cribbage board.
The sailing ship here is the pendulum of the clock, swaying gently through the waves. Yes, this moon grows left to right - I'll do it correctly next time! Oak.
Hand-carved in Maple, this approximately 8" by 12" box was made to hold two matching ceramic goblets. The banner on the right reads, "Vous et nul autre", a medieval French phrase that translates, "You and no other." Maple.
