Trinket Box

A trinket box for a big birthday. With house mouse peeping from his hole and Mrs Mouse inside guarding the cheese.

The top and base are made from Oak whilst the sides are made from light red Meranti, which is often referred to as ‘Philippine Mahogany’ (although the link between Meranti and true Mahogany is quite tenuous).

The outside mouse and the large wedge of cheese are Beech, the small cheese is Oak and Mrs Mouse (in the box) is made from a reclaimed beam from a demolition site. I have no idea what this is but it has a fantastic variation in colour throughout its’ body.

The lid ‘stay’ is made from an old guitar string – nothing goes to waste.
