The design is taken from Taunton’s Basic Box Making. The bottom is mitered paduak with ebony splines. The top is walnut. Measures 3” x 3” x 3”. Hope you enjoy.

3” x 3” x 3” and all of those bevels, miters, and splines, that’s almost too small for comfort. I can see the tiny parts sled, and Jimmy DiResta and his #2 pencil hold down.

It is a nice box.

I made some of these designs for my wife glasswork, they are a challenge and a fun build.

Your work looks great!

i love it! great work and very handsome combination of woods. I like how you combined two woods on the darker end of the spectrum.

Thanks. I was going to go with holly splines but my wife thought that a darker color would look better. She was right but don’t tell her I said that. LOL>

For the top, I used a wipe-on poly with a semi-gloss finish. For the paduak, which I think sanded already has a shine on it, I used a spray-on poly with a satin finish. I thought it went well together.

Have your say...
