Yes you read it right. This box is 0.75 cubic inches in volume.
The box is 23mm x 23mm x 23mm (29/32” cubed). Now that is a tiny box.
The wall thickness is 2mm (5/64”) as are the pattern stripes.
The stripes are Sycamore, Pau Amarello, English Yew, Padauk and Purpleheart.
The box edging, lipping and base are Ebony.
Glues used are PVA to join the stripes and Cyanoacrylate (Super Glue) to build the box.
Finish is wax over sanding sealer.

Pic 2. The top.
Pic 3. Bottom and top separated to show interior and lipping and that the pattern is throughout.
Pic 4. Something to give you a visual clue to how small 23mm is.
Pic 5. The wooden box (foreground) with the original paper model (background).
All the wood was from my scrap bin.
The construction is blogged in four parts starting here.
