Kindler Box

I rescued this timber from the fire-wood pile at my local timber yard, primarily drawn by the beauty of the natural splits and shakes.

As individual boards, they have little strength and are viewed as rejects by the furniture industry.
However, by understanding the capabilities of the timber and allowing this to lead the design, I hope to demonstrate that with careful consideration, combining these boards as one can indeed produce a functional and strong piece yet still showing the natural beauty of other-wise scrap timber.

In keeping with the original concept, I have used hinges and a lock from a woodworm infested wardrobe which was also rescued from a firewood pile resulting in a fully recycled piece.
