Heirloom quality solid Birdseye Maple tissue box cover handmade and handcrafted in my wood shop. This wood is imported from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
All woods used are sustainable renewable resource hardwoods.
This beautifully finished maple tissue cover has been constructed with the utmost care and personal attention to detail. This handcrafted cover will enhance any of your rooms with an elegant or rustic quality that your friends, family, and guests will admire. Don’t let the eye-sore of your ‘brand designed’ tissue boxes ruin your well put together home decor. Originally requested by my amazing wife so that we could place tissue boxes anywhere in our home and create beautiful, custom, handcrafted ‘talking pieces’ in every room. Let our custom designs help beautify your home as well. These holders fit all major brand (standard count) tissue boxes and custom sizes can be made to fit your specific brand and count upon request at no additional charge. Simply measure the length, width and height of your box and include a message during purchase or directly and I’ll accommodate any size you require.
This item is ‘made-to-order’ and will ship within approximately 10 days of purchase.
This item is made from solid Birdseye Maple. No plywood, veneers, or substitute woods are used unless specifically listed. The natural birdseye specs and figured blonde wood are typical of birdseye maple and add those little touches that veneers or staining can’t duplicate. This is a one-of-a-kind product as no two finished items will be exactly alike due to natural deviations in the wood used. The maple birdseye is light to moderate for as to not be too busy.
Birdseye maple is not readily available to me locally in Texas and is imported from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
This item is made from solid birdseye maple, Titebond III waterproof wood glue, and OSMO Polyx-Oil / Wax Blend. All listed materials are non-toxic and FDA approved as food safe.
The maple is from non-dimensional rough lumber milled down to 1/4 inch thickness in my shop. All my wood is stored until the moisture count is less than 10% so that warping and/or cracking won’t occur over time (not for outdoor use). The box construction uses perfectly cut fingered box joints all the way around and will not come loose over time (see pictures). The top is glued long-grain to long-grain to ensure a superior, heirloom durable bond. The oil / wax finish is hand rubbed over two (2) days to ensure a beautiful silky smooth satin sheen.
The finish is a hand-rubbed ‘OSMO Polyx-Oil’ oil-wax blend that is considered one of the best on the market. This hand rubbed finish helps bring out the deep figure in specialty woods like birdseye and curly maple. This finish takes approximately 10 hours to dry between coats and there are typically 2 to 3 coats applied. The oil / wax blend is from renewable resources and is completely food safe when cured.
This cover is bottomless and simply slides over the tissue box. It is heavy enough not to allow the box to slide around and will not lift when you attempt to pull a tissue out.
