This is a small tile top box made from quartersawn Sycamore with Arts and Crafts detailing (photo 1 & 3). The box is similar to one that I saw on the internet (unfortunately I can’t remember where to give credit). The top (photo 2) measures 6.75” wide x 7” high and is made from 0.75” thick stock. The top is through mortise and tenon construction (photo 6). The 4” tile is from Motawi Tile. The body of the box is 3.5” deep and was made from 0.75” (posts), 0.5” sides and 1/8” bottom (photo 4). Construction of the body was stub tenons. The finish is three coats of General Finishes Satin Arm-R-Seal and a final coat of clear Briwax. The top is held in place with rare earth magnets in the body (0.25”, photo 4) and top (0.375”, photo 5).
