Tiger Myrtle Box with figured Marri Top hand made by Brian Dawson

Tiger Myrtle Box with figured Marri Top hand made by Brian Dawson. The idea for this box arose when I heard that the exhibition was called ‘Tiger Tiger”. A few years ago, I brought back some tiger myrtle from Tasmania and now I have a chance to use some of it. Similarly, when I was in WA, I procured a few slabs of rare, figured Marri. Both these timbers appear “tigerish”. Although I mostly make non rectilineal pieces, the wonderful “tigerish” markings speak for themselves and call for a more traditional style.

Size: 175mm square and is 180 mm high

Care: The finish is Livos Natural Oil Sealer. An occasional wipe with a soft duster should keep it looking fresh. Avoid direct sunlight.
