Robert is an artisan native to Nanaimo, British Columbia where he salvages much of the wood used in his work. Logs which are considered to have little market value (e.g. destined for firewood) are milled with a portable band saw mill. Robert works with local woods to illustrate the diversity and beauty of British Columbia's forest resources and the need for more attention to resource management. This jewelry box is finished with four coats of rubbed polyurethane making for a very durable and attractive finish.
