‘Asa No Ha’ Walnut Keepsake Box

Inspired by Japanese woodworking techniques, but always daunted by the level of skill involved, I’ve delved into the wonders of Kumiko-Zaiku. Traditionally found in Shoji, I’ve used a popular Kumiko pattern here to create focal points with both beauty and depth.

Large keepsake box, in a mixture of Walnut, Olive Ash and Maple solid wood. Adorning the top is a popular Japanese pattern known as ‘Asa No Ha’. Brass hinges allow for an elegant and fluid opening, which also integrate a stop, holding the lid open at the perfect angle.

Finished in natural oils and wax.
