Handmade in New York state, this unique valet is handcrafted with heirloom-quality hardwoods. The smooth North American maple has a clean, contemporary presence and an integrated dowel hinge allows for an unobstructed finish on all sides. Mitered corners with splines of contrasting cherry wood add strength and durability (and visual appeal) while segments of walnut and cherry on the bottom and handle provide additional contrast. The handsome lid features a specimen of cherry wood, artistically altered to create a three-dimensional, rippled surface. You cannot resist brushing your fingers along the gentle folds of the inviting texture before peering inside. Within the handmade valet, you’ll find the bottom lined with felted fabric for safe-keeping of personal items such as a wallet, keys, jewelry, watch, or money clip. Two dividers of cherry wood keep items tidy, but may be removed to accommodate larger items. Wood details : Each box is constructed of all-natural hand-polished sustainable hardwoods and provided with a clear oil finish to protect against scratches and moisture. All coloring is natural – stains are not used.
