Alexandra is a turned wood box that I handcrafted from spalted maple and cherry woods.
For the bowl I used maple responsibly sourced here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. The lid is made from a re-purposed old cherry wood board. The heartwood of the cherry wood board is very dark while the sapwood is lighter creating a unique contrast on this lid.
Without the lid, this wood turned box measures approximately 3-1/2″ wide, 2-1/2″ tall, and 2″ deep. With the lid the measurements are 4″ wide by 3″ tall. I finished the wood with high friction polish to enhance its natural color, grain, and tone.
Care instructions are included with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
