This box is the first coffin-shaped box I made, using wood reclaimed from an old pallet and reclaimed plywood. Painted purple before sanding back to give a distressed shabby look, it’s plain wood inside and is finished with Danish oil.
Goth Box #2, which was the same size, was bought by someone for her cat to sit in! I thought it would be too small, but she said her cat loved getting into tight spaces (though maybe it was a small cat).
Dimensions: 38cm x 13cm x 9cm
Goth Boxes are coffin-shaped boxes with or without hinged or fitted lids, made from reclaimed wood and/or reclaimed plywood. Some are plain open boxes, others have lids. Some are left natural, some stained and others painted decoratively, often with a distressed look, then finished with Danish oil or a home-made beeswax and linseed oil polish. Each one is a unique piece and is numbered and signed on the underside.
