As I worked on this box top a theme repeated, that of a sunrise with high fair weather clouds.  If you view the sycamore from different angles and watch the light play on its figure you see a delightful chatoyant effect that changes the ‘sky’, mimicking nature’s beauty.  The landscape portion of the top is cherry and will deepen in color, appropriately, to a rich earthy bronze with age.   

‘Sunrise’ displays traditional hand cut dovetail joinery, hallmark of the finest furniture.  There are hidden splines in the removable tray’s mitered corners, even the hand sculpted pull is strongly attached with a mortise and tenon.  This handmade box has the strength and enduring beauty to be an heirloom possession in your family for many years to come.
