As a few others have done, I too have succumbed to Martyn’s challenge . . . http://lumberjocks.com/projects/49032 . . . and here is my teeny-tiny box for his review.
The wood is a tiny piece of maple.
Photo #1 is the box with the lid in place, on a penny.
Photo #2 has the cap and base separated.
Photo #3 shows the bottom half of the box, being held upside down on a 0.0225” drill bit, so that I could get a close up photo showing that I can put something inside.
Sorry that there is no inlay work. I decided to settle for the grooves around each piece.
The final dimensions are 0.070” outer diameter, and a closed height of 0.150”. The base cavity is 0.026” in diameter, and the cap interior is 0.039” to fit over the neck of the base.
I think that the longest part of this project was when I dropped the cap, and it ended up under the table saw with lots of other bits of saw dust. (Grumble . . . )
It’s totally useless, but it was fun to make it.
