Don had an incredibly mischievous imagination for the design of his boxes. Besides the conventional tropical woods boxes, he worked on organic designs which he created from rare tropical wood pieces that he was always collecting and putting aside in his workshop for a special day and a special new project in mind, like this one, which looks like it just came out from a fairy tale.
This charming box has its place in my library, I use its delicate small drawers to hide precious little thinks…The box, which has two drawers was created from a granadilla tree knot. Take a close look at the finish of the drawers, every detail was taken care of, notice the small wood sticks that Don installed to prevent the drawer from falling out. The box has the Don S. Shoemaker decal studio label at the bottom.
