While working on a small box of Zebrawood Veneer I had some left overs so I made this even smaller gift box. I needed this box quickly so I finished it before the other box. This box is about 3 inches square and is MDF with a Zebrawood veneer on the exposed surfaces. The top is an extra peice of walnut, and a Beech plywood bottem.

Nothing special but hopefully the receipient will enjoy the box as much as the silver earings I put inside. Guess I will know soon enough.

The sides were veneered first then assembled. The miters were off slightly so the walnut in the corners. Then to cover the end grain on the top i veneered on 1/16th inch Zebrawood slices took two trys to get it right. Lot of work for a from scrap project. It was fun playing with it.

Thanks, I will have the opportunity to build some small boxes and I’d like do more veneering.
