Peter Lloyd, working from his small workshop in Cumbria UK, searches out unusual and beautiful English hardwoods to create jewellery boxes, ring boxes, work boxes, writing slopes.
Whether it be a desk box made from tiger oak, a jewelry chest, a little jewel of a ring box or stationery box of burr elm, each of these handmade wooden boxes is a celebration of its wood.
Where have the last three years gone? 2023 has crept up on me! But the pandemic is more or less over. It's certainly off the front pages and life is returning to some sort of normal.
I've made three or four boxes recently but my full time boxmaking days are drawing to a close. I've made 1573 numbered boxes and probably nearly as many smaller boxes that aren't numbered. i don't imagine for one minute I've made my last box but more and more of my time seems to be taken up by voluntary work in the village. Plus of course, my bicycle and the open road are an ever present temptation.
Enjoy the box galleries! Peter
