Christmas Greetings from New Zealand.
These pictures were sent through by an English couple working out in new Zealand for 18 months.
First up is a toy showing Santa at the bandsaw! The box is marked Graupner Holtzminiaturan, made in Germany.
Next is a fine box made with the most basic of tools, featuring very well cut free hand dovetails.
The wood is Rimu a native New Zealand timber.
A well made set of wooden hinges in the style of Peter Lloyd http://www.finehardwoodboxes.com/
The floating panel lid is finished flush with the sides which gives it a solid contemporary look.
