KEEPSAKE BOXES
Les Thede grew up on an Iowa farm and learned to appreciate hard work and hand-built items. He learned and eventually taught Engineering in Ohio and found woodworking both a satisfying and challenging hobby. The hobby turned into a small business and the shop was not only a place to work but also to relax from the stresses of modern society. Les had no problem practicing social distancing during recent times, he had been doing that for years! Hope you like his work!

As you read the description of each box, you realize the elevated degree of Les' craftsmanship. These Keepsake Boxes are a true hand-made example of Arts & Crafts craftsmanship!
Absolutely a beautiful gift item!

Wrapped in bubble wrap and then surrounded by packing beads the Keepsake Boxes are shipped in an oversize box.

This keepsake box is crafted of reclaimed maple lumber and uses an exotic wood called Leopardwood (Australia) for the top.

The interior of the box uses black velvet to cover the bottom of the tray and the bottom of the box.
The left hand section of the bottom of the box has a padded velvet ring-bar with four slots for rings.
Because the box is made from reclaimed lumber, there may be some evidence of previous use such as small pin holes or a short trail in the wood.
