Carved Box
Cherrywood box hand quarter-sawn and carved by Tom Latané with hand made iron hardware and lock. 2006

The customer sent an antique ward box from an iron chest, for which he needed a key. Tom forged the key, which has a symbolic bit...notice the three crosses, the one in the middle with a crown.

The mouth in the repoussé face opens and closes when the key is turned in the lock.

Viking style axe, inlaid with silver. 2003

The forged dragon figure had chased patterns on its back and legs. The finished dragon is a rack for hand forged kitchen utensils.

Scandinavian style two-candle chandelier with tramel for adjusting height.
