For me the best part of the movie Nights in Rodanthe, which I finally watched last week, were David Finck's gorgeous Driftwood Boxes.
Finck, a distinguished woodworker from North Carolina, not only made the driftwood boxes but also set up a sequence so Diane Lane could appear to make one of the boxes in the movie.
He also supplied some of the tools and coached Lane in a few aspects of dovetail joinery. I think he should have risen to stardom, but on his website he writes...
"These two boxes represent my fifteen minutes of fame, though ironically, my contribution to the Warner Bros. movie of 2008, Nights in Rodanthe, went uncredited, so I guess I'm still fairly anonymous! Nevertheless, the experience was a fun one. I received a call from the property manager of the movie asking if I could design and build two boxes for the movie as well as supply some props and do some coaching."
Fink does Commission Work and I'm sure he'll be happy to craft a one-of-a-kind driftwood box just for you.
"My work is about quality, careful attention to detail, functionality, and permanence. I think of it as an ongoing attempt to capture the essential core of the beautiful and bring that into people’s homes and lives."
