In this box, I noticed the problems of including mechanism in hexagonal pattern, so, the box haven´t any :-(
In this box, I confirmed the problems of joinery in 30 degrees, especially when you´re not an expert woodworker.
In this box, I made my last attempt to work inlaying veneer. I´ve seen what some artist can do in boxes and pictures, and decided that deffinitively wasn´t my road.

After all this was a pretty little box.

woods are lenga (box structure), nogal (walnut), sambuceiro and caoba

thanks for your comments. (in advance :-) )

Nice project and it might be something that I want to try soon. I am certainly not an expert woodworker – just a novice, but the only way to get better is to try new things. This actually reminds me of 3 projects that I currently have going on. I found some samples of the tumbling block last week, and really like the pattern, so I am working on an end grain cutting board with it, but I did want to try my hand with inlays of it as well. As far at the joinery – I am not necessarily looking forward to my hand at 30 degree joints on a box. I am also currently making a chess board with edging and wasn’t happy with my 90 degree miters. Finally, is that a sliding dovetail box in the background? I just made a Steve Ramsey inspired sliding dovetail box. Seems like we have a bit in common :-)

I think it’s a very nice looking little box. Your boxes keep getting better and better, sometimes learning this type of work goes very slow then suddenly very fast. You have done very well, don’t be discouraged too easily.

What you learned will make your future boxes that much better. If you do not feel that this spectacular piece is not worth keeping, please send it to me.
