Yesterday I was asked to build a tiny box. This is fortunate, because I only know how to do one thing…build tiny boxes. The request, from a reader, was to build a box similar to my first successful tiny walnut box. It is interesting to note that the entire conversation took place on Twitter. He asked me if I planned to build any more like the first one, because it was his favorite. I said I would build him one, and the deal was done.
I have been having trouble sleeping lately. I didn’t have much work to do today, and I woke up at 3 am. When I can’t sleep, I head to the shop. My first completed tiny box took 3 weeks. I finished the commission in one. It is, without question, my best box yet. More importantly, I got some ideas, while I was working on it, for another box.
