Bespoke Baby Keepsake Box

June 11, 2020 - Kerikeri, Northland, New Zealand

Many of my favourite pieces are birthed directly from the customer's needs. Recently, I had the pleasure of building a keepsake box for an unborn baby, due in August this year.

The baby's name is secret. All I have are the initials WRF. This, to me, adds another degree of sentiment. Something private and something sacred.

It offered a pleasant opportunity to get the carving chisels out and set to work on some letters. Letters that stand for a new human yet to come into this world.

This box was made to store all the bits that go along with a newborn. Birth certificate, hospital bracelet, a lock of hair...

Something to keep forever.
