Features of our boxes are detailed below. And images show various designs possible with the optional extras depicted in our shop. We are always happy to make bespoke features to your requirement.
The Above is our 'Large Special offer' box which was originally designed with cross stitchers in mind and is now the most popular choice of box in our range, featuring the most cost-effective large capacity and versatile storage for needlework & crafts.
The box features from the top down:-
A lifting lid with heavy-duty solid oak and large gauge brass screw hinge mechanism which opens and holds the lid just passed the upright position to enable ease of access to the storage compartment below.
The storage compartment features a sliding/removable shallow tray within a large storage space.
The Workbox as standard is hand waxed with a natural oak finish. With hand waxed 'Light oak' being an optional finish.
The box is fitted with handles on the sides which assist when moving the box around your work area.
There are 3 small drawers @1.5 inches deep, the top one of which is empty to fill with small odds and ends.
The second small drawer is fitted with 32 Cross stitch style bobbin compartments which can also be used for any small items.

The skein/bobbin compartments can be removed from the drawer if required and we are happy to alternatively fit 2 x bobbin or 2 x skein storage inserts if preferred. You can always purchase an additional skein or bobbin storage insert if required for the top drawer or you can have bespoke storage inserts fitted at additional cost.
