Phil and Martha collaborate on original designs. Sketching a design directly on a piece of wood, Phil does the shape on his band saw. They sand and finish each box in their proprietary blend of oils and waxes. Each box is signed and year-dated. The wood species is inscribed on the bottom of the box. Some of the designs are repeated in different woods. Some are one of a kind. If the listing states, the box may be made to order with you being able to select the wood species.
