Beautifully made with love by Bruce Spaulding and his son Craig, this Tasmanian Sassafras Medium Jewel Box is a stunning gift for that special person or occasion. It is lined with black suede and divided with internal ring fittings and compartments to store all of your special treasures.
The box is 28cm long, 20cm wide and 7.5cm high. Please note the inlay layout may slightly vary from the video.
In Tasmania, Sassafras is found in most areas of the state, except for drier areas of the east coast. It is common on both the eastern and western mountains ranges. Of all Tasmanian timbers, sassafras has the most variable and dynamic colouring. It is normally a beautiful and pale creamy grey to white but can be streaked with rich browns and black heart.
About the Maker:With 30 years experience building homes and cabinet making, retiree and maker Bruce demonstrates his keen eye for Tasmanian woodcraft lovingly hand finishing each box to perfection, all in his home-based Launceston workshop. Bruce started making his boxes in 1999 after retiring, at first for a friend's small gift shop and then to much surprise found his boxes were being taken all over the world, so much was the demand now his son Craig helps him out in the workshop.
Whilst Bruce and Craig have a modern workshop with all the newer woodworking tools at the end of the day nothing beats the finish of good old fashion 'elbow Grease'. In other words, the timber products are all hand finished. They believe gaining a quality finish is as much about feel as sight. Bruce knows his timbers and only purchases select grade material sourced in Tasmania for his boxes. The timbers arrive seasoned and ready to be machined to dimension. Bruce thicknesses each board and then invests extra time to colour match each component to provide the best combination for each box.
Over the years Bruce and Craig have built relationships with a small number of well-respected millers and timber merchants in Tasmania and always makes sure to source their timber sustainably. Bruce's Boxes are fine solid timber products. Unlike glossy thin veneers there is no substitute for the feel, smell and look of real solid timber.
We hope you will love your Tasmanian Sassafras Jewel Box as much as Bruce and Craig loved making it for you.

When looking for a special friend's 50th birthday gift, a jewellery box with the potential to compliment her newly renovated walk-in robe sounded like a plan. I found tasnique online and was so impressed with the range. Knowing that Tassie sourced timber was special and advertised as handmade also seemed the best plan. The ordering system is easy to use, they made contact with me during the process and even called me before it was shipped to ensure I was happy. I was even more impressed when what I expected to be a 40-day plus postage turnaround was bought forward a few weeks. When I opened my package I was delighted with the finished product- including that beautiful smell of Tassie sassafras timber. I would absolutely recommend tasnique for a special purchase.
