If you like this little box, I really can’t take much credit for it. The design and construction are very simple to let the beauty of the wood speak for itself. (Can you tell I love spalted maple?)
I had a couple of pieces left over from another project that I didn’t know if I’d ever use because they were of uneven thickness, bowed, and had some wane. I finally gathered the courage to try and mill some usable wood out of them on my little 9” Delta band saw, and I ended up with enough for this little box. It measures about 5” x 4” x 3” high, and the finish is wipe-on poly.
The only unusual thing about the build is that the miter keys are actually a mixture of crushed stone and epoxy, which I forced into the miter slots and sanded smooth when dry.
Thanks for looking.
