James Oliver is known for his precise fit and finish and his skill with hand woodworking tools and specializes in restoring and using antique tools. James has set aside some time to create these amazing Nootka Cypress storage boxes from time to time. They are crafted here on Vancouver Island in the style of a traditional (Paulownia) kiribako, fastened together with wood nails and have a crisp fit and finish as well as some signature touches unique to James’ work. There really is no way to overstate the beauty of James’ work, the quality and workmanship on these is of the caliber that most people have never had the chance to see in person.
The finished box will either be left with a natural hand planed finish, or coated with a thin layer of pure tung oil for a totally natural finish.
Material: Nootka Cypress, Bamboo/tree nails
