Tissue boxes

Like others, I’ve made numerous tissue boxes.
I’ll update this post with more pics and details over time.

This one is Florida Cypress with an Antique Old Growth Heart Pine lid.

The pine is reclaimed from a house built in the 1870s from timber grown on the site. It’s about 7 miles from my property.
The lid floats in a thin groove in the 4 sides.

This one is Black Walnut and Cypress constructed using the same technique as the square box.

The table is another project; it’ll get its own post.

This is the same basic design using Black Cherry with a Heart Pine top.

I attached two others:
One with Black Walnut and a Heart Pine lid and one with Black Walnut and an Elm lid.
The square Black Walnut box has continuous grain around the sides.

The Antique Heart Pine table is also another piece with its own story.

Clean and simple little tissue box. 
I like the look of the old growth pine.

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

sometimes the simplist is the most beautiful. nice work. thanks for sharing your work.

Warm look from the recycled wood makes them an inviting tissue presentation. 

The pine looks like it would make a great sound board for musical instruments. 

I’ll bet I’d you tap on them whey would have a great residence. 

Nice job.

Oh yeah.  I am a sucker for vertical grain.  The top on that square box really sets it apart.
