HOME PREVIOUS PREVIOUS DETAILS OF BOX 1236 NEXT NEXT BACK TO ARCHIVE

A folding chess & backgammon box. The lid of the solid padouk box has a chessboard of bird's eye maple and American black walnut inset. The interior backgammon board uses the same two timbers on a cherry background. With wenge and maple counters.

FINISH: French polish

CARE: Avoid extremes of heat; avoid placing the box in a damp place; do not store anything damp in the box. Any of these actions may damage the box beyond repair. Polish occasionally with a good quality beeswax polish.
Wood is a natural product; the material used to construct the box has been selected to give the best stability consistent with its decorative aspect. Highly decorative boxes are more likely to exhibit some movement at joints or between veneers. In a centrally heated environment the box may show signs of cyclical movement following the heating / non-heating seasons.
Avoid forcing the lid back too far, this may damage the hinges.
