Peter Lloyd, working from his small workshop in Cumbria UK, searches out unusual and beautiful English hardwoods to create jewellery boxes, ring boxes, work boxes, writing slopes.
Whether it be a desk box made from tiger oak, a jewelry chest, a little jewel of a ring box or stationery box of burr elm, each of these handmade wooden boxes is a celebration of its wood.
I am now back in harness! The grass has been brought back into some sort of order and most of weeds pulled out so I'm back in the workshop. And making boxes!
After a bike trip in Europe with Christine the workshop is once again filling with dust and boxes are beginning to appear.
I'm a little short of large pivot hinged jewellery boxes - I'm making some more of these at the moment but apart from that there are a good number of desk boxes available and I've got plenty of ring boxes.
As ever, there's more news from a different perspective on the diary page. Peter
