OK, this tiny box thing has probably just about run it’s course but I’ll add one more in full knowledge that it’s huge by comparison to at least two others. In it’s defense, it does have a little marquetry, cut Boulle style, on the sides. It’s dimensions are 4 mm x 5mm x 6mm high. I thought after the bottom was glued on that if I’d put it inside, just as easy, I could have saved a mm but I’ve heard that size isn’t everything.
This box is the simplest of the three, being made up of 11 pieces. The sliding lid box has 12 and I go dizzy trying to count the pieces in the apartment building sized one.
Again, the finish is sprayed on antique oil (WD40) and the woods are exotic dyed veneers from Lee Valley.
