Founder of Contour Boxes
• Your chosen landscape carved into a beautiful English oak box
• Name somewhere, ANYWHERE
• A truly unique gift With just a place name I can find and recreate your specific piece of topography using special digital map data.

From this any landscape in the world, and, indeed, pieces of the moon and Mars can be carved by a special machine to exceptionally high accuracy. Significant locations such as houses, chalets, hiking routes and villages can all be marked with a solid silver pin. Each box carries its own unique number and can be engraved inside the lid with a personal message.

Operating as usual

“I'm interested in an Annapurna Contour box after completing the Annapurna Sanctuary trek. We started trekking at Ghandruk so it would be great if all of that route was included on the box, with a silver marker for basecamp."⁠

A beautiful way to keep memories alive,

My favourite Contour Box? A hard choice but this is one of them, reflecting such a lovely simple story; requested by a fisherman as a trophy for himself in celebration of his largest ever catch, a 13lb salmon on the river Spey, Scotland. ⁠

A solid silver marker embedded in the exact spot where the fantastic catch took place. It reinforced my thought that it's not always about a mega mountain...⁠

⁠See below to see the personal story.

A unique, personalised wedding gift in the making: A Contour Box representing where the engagement took place - Doubtful Sound, NZ. A map was used to identify the precise location of where the moment took place and this is where a solid silver marker was then embedded marking the exact spot.

Our Story

The mainstay of my work is personal commissions where a client is looking for a very specific and tailor-made piece of furniture.

I also make prospective work for sale through galleries and exhibitions; these pieces often draw inspiration from landscapes but above all I aim to make unique, timeless pieces of furniture.
Contour Boxes are exactly that and can be seen at www.contourboxes.co.uk.
