A Collection Of Small Boxes

A Collection Of Small Boxes
Here’s a collection of small boxes that we did over the summer. They vary in size from 2″ tall to 4 1/2″ tall and they feature pyrography and staining.

A pair of the boxes also feature a small glass bead accent in the center of the lid. They are all made from Ash and finished with wipe-on poly.

Here are some photos of the individual boxes. The first ones are of the largest box, that is approximately 4 1/2″ tall X 3 1/4″ at its widest. It features a black glass bead on the lid, matching the black stained band that was burned with ‘swirls’ and ‘dots’:

This one is 2 3/4″ tall by 2 1/4 in diameter. It also features a black glass bead on the lid and a bit of texturing around the black stained band:

And finally, the smallest of this series, this one is 2″ tall by 2 3/4″ in diameter. It features a different lid style than the previous one but it also has the ‘basketweave’ style pyrography:

  1. Nice little set, Ted. Just about to go down the pyrography road myself so am looking at all of your stuff. I really like the contrast you set up with the stain on these. Very nice. Good to see the detail shot. Love the texture.

    Thanks, Ed! The burning and staining has opened up a whole new world of design possibilities for me. The Ash really takes a nice stain. I like the way that it gives an old, worn look to these items. Thanks, again for the kind comment.
