The Tamar model is a neat, surprisingly roomy, general-purpose box that here is featured in Sassafras with the lid in a beautiful piece of Black Heart Sassafras; this is not a different tree but Sassafras which has been affected by a fungus that leaves a dark trail, but no damage through the timber. This is the same fungus that causes the dark stripes in Tiger Myrtle and in all 'spalted' timbers and is common in the wet Tasmanian forests. The box is lined in a taupe coloured synthetic suede and is fitted with solid brass hinges and the lid stays. The finish is a soft, satiny polyurethane that flatters the timber and is also durable and hard-wearing. There are no protruding knobs or catches on the face of the box, just a simple indent for opening and a neat, rare-earth magnet to hold the lid in place. With its generous depth, the Tamar box can be used for many storage purposes and its simple lines allow it to fit any context in the home or office.
