Custom Jewellery Box

Susannah's Jewelery Box

Susannah’s Jewellery Box

From our Parramatta Farmer’s Market stall, our shed received a request to build a Custom Jewellery Box for Susannah.

One of our resident experienced box makers and a couple of our keen shed members formed a team and created a master piece for Susannah.

There was a combination of several different timbers, but the really unique item was a Pyrographic imprint of an Australian Gum tree on the lid of the box. A working sketch was provided by Susannah and our our resident artist …. Frank …. went to town and came up with a fabulous final product.
