Our feathers help ground us and bring us clarity. We wanted to make a feather case/box that would carry that respect we have for our feathers. We spent a long weekend recently designing what we thought was the perfect, coolest feather box we could come up with and we are very happy with the outcome. (feather NOT included)
The frame is Eastern White Cedar, which is 18” long, 5 1/2” wide and 1 1/4” deep. We routered out the interior of each side leaving a 5/8th” cavity inside to properly hold a feather. We created an “old school” hinge with 5 1/2 ounce moose leather fastened with glue and 10 solid copper tacks. Our boxes fasten with two moose leather ties that come up from the bottom and wrap around a moose antler button on the lid of the box. Inside each box we have attached red felt to hold our feathers carefully in place. Each box is carefully finished with 3 coats of varnish.
