What Are Quiltboxes?

I've taken some of the best-loved and most interesting quilt blocks from past centuries and translated them into finely crafted wooden boxes, using beautiful and exotic veneers to reinterpret the designs. Each box is unique; no two are ever just alike.

I handcraft each box from premium cabinet grade Baltic birch plywood, so the inside reveals the delicate grain of the white birch. I cut the quilt block design, by hand, to showcase the lush variety of natural colors and grains in the veneers, which often include spectacular bird's eye, burl, curly, dimple, flame, quilted or other figured woods.

These pieces evoke the comfort of cherished heirloom quilts, as well as the timeless strength of fine hardwood furniture.
