Heirloom quality solid Texas Aromatic Cedar tissue box cover handmade and handcrafted in my wood shop from my local saw mill.
This beautifully finished cedar 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.
When freshly milled after drying, the cedar is a reddish / pink color. This color will slowly subside to a darker tan brown as shown in the picture above. Time makes all finished woods darker and warmer. The fresh bright colors of cedar, walnut, oak, and other domestic and exotic hardwoods typically turn darker and warmer over time.
This item is made from solid Texas Aromatic Cedar. No plywood, veneers, or substitute woods are used unless specifically listed. Unless otherwise requested, these items use mostly the heartwood (dark) wood. Greater mixes of sap-wood (blonde) can be requested upon order. The natural dark wood and lighter sap-wood are typical of cedar 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.
This item is made from solid cedar, Titebond III waterproof wood glue, super blonde shellac, and satin waterborne polyurethane. All listed materials are non-toxic and FDA approved as food safe.
The cedar 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 finish procedure is 2-3 layers of super blonde shellac to seal the wood from moisture and give it a light ambering color, then 4-8 layers of waterborne satin, furniture grade, polyurethane to make them bathroom durable, sanding in-between layers to ensure a perfect finish quality. All my finishes are non-toxic and FDA approved as food safe.
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.
