Sycamore Box

Commission Date: January 2012
Delivery Date: February 2012
Woods: European Rippled Sycamore and Lacewood (London Plane)

Dimensions: 300mm wide, 200mm deep, 115mm high
Guide Price: £700 - £1,200

The challenge with white wood like Sycamore, especially if it has a decorative ripple or figure to it, is keeping it as white as possible when applying a finish. In all instances a slight tinting of the wood is unavoidable yet the finish of Renaissance Wax, a microcrystalline wax polish that is extensively used by antique restorers and by museums, has succeeded in keeping this box impressively true to the colour of the bare wood.

A strong figuring is used throughout by using Lacewood (London Plane) for the horizontal surfaces whist allowing the contrasting colour to break-up the piece for the eye.
