Tiger Myrtle Veneer Box handmade by Brian Dawson

Tiger Myrtle Veneer Box handmade by Brian Dawson. The idea for this box arose when I heard that the exhibition was called ‘Tiger Tiger”. I had some highly figured tiger myrtle veneer and I chose Huon Pine as the interior and Blackwood as the lid with a tiger myrtle handle . These are all Tasmanian timbers which I brought back from there  a few years ago. Although I mostly make non rectilineal  pieces, the wonderful “tigerish” markings called for a more traditional style.

Size: 195mm square and is 280 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.
