Quick Overview

What better place to store your jewelry than in a castle!

Product Description

Jeff Neil is a woodworker who lives and creates fine boxes in Gray, Tennessee. 

"While working full-time as a research engineer, I experimented with various mediums until I found that woodworking brought me the most pleasure and also allowed me to use those skills I had developed as an engineer coupled with my interest in fine crafts."

Jeff has the pleasure of being married to a quilter, who inspires a lot of his work;  jhe uses traditional quilt block patterns as the spring-board for the design of his jewelry boxes.  Using marquetry techniques Jeff adorns the top of the box; and as this pattern is called Air Castle, he cleverly added turrets to the four corners of the box!

12" long, 8" deep, and 2 ½" high (3 ¼" to the tip of each turret).  Predominant woods used are Bubinga, Walnut, and Curly Maple.
