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.

11" long, 7" deep, and 4" high.  There is one removable half-tray inside.  Predominant woods used are Cherry, Curly Maple, and Walnut.
