Default Sewing Work Box

Hi all,

These work boxes are proving very popular, someone in the US might want to consider them. There's a real market and quite large!
This one is Figured Jarrah with a book matched Figured Red Gum lid panel and Queensland Maple lid trim and tray. Finish is Hard Burnishing Oil, which I think I might have cracked!
You will note that there is now a stand to go with the box, with a little shelf underneath. This apparently is a must, so the box is stable on it's stand, but can be lifted and taken elsewhere if desired. At the moment, I'm selling one every two weeks and that's just through one shop!
Anywho, the base is Jarrah with some figure on the legs. Finish for this was Scandinavian oil, the shelf was burnished.

Regards,

Rob

Welcome back??? Anyway, great to hear from you again and thanks for the pictures. I'm not sure the sewing boxes would play as well here in the States, but until someone offers them and we can see the sales results, I don't REALLY know.. Have you thought about exporting yours....
They ARE pretty Rob,so again,thanks for sharing and keep up the great work.
