The entire box is adorned with a Turkish Ottoman carving pattern. The hand cut relief carving covers even the bottom of the box.
The underside of the top of this box has a small plinth attached. This is a recipe card holder, to allow the chef to place a recipe on top for easy viewing.
This box was designed by and made for my wife for her 30th birthday. We have been quickly filling the space with our tried & true culinary favorites.
It is made from Quarter-sawn White Oak. The outside was fumed with ammonia to darken it prior to cutting the lid off. The inside remains much lighter as a result. It was finished with linseed oil, shellac, and colored paste wax.
