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 using wood inlay as his "fabric" for the quilt squares.
