I posted previously a miniature box that I made based upon the Marty Backe post. After making a rectangular box, I decided I needed to attempt a triangle box.

The box is made from Quarter Sawn Sycamore with really nice grain on the sides and the top, bottom and insert are made from Wenge. (It will be the last time I use Wenge when I need to use a shooting board to miter the corners. It splinters very easily.) The stripe on the side is made of Yellowheart and is for aligning the top and bottom to put it back together.

The box was finished with several coats of finishing was and then buffed.

Redoak, When I first looked at this beautiful posting, I was wondering about fingers and blades and small parts. Of course this is the perfect project for a shooting board, custom made hand miter box, and careful work. If the wood is finished before assembly, you can avoid glue stains, and it would be a quicker operation.

With a liner, these would sell for ring boxes in gift stores, and jewelry stores. I could see young men wanting to make these for an engagement ring. With some jigs, glue, pre-planed wood, and a simple clamp or press this would be a nice item for a wood working novice to make. Thanks for sharing this.
