This box is another box in my textured object series. The box has less texture than my previously posted textured plywood box. For this box, I created small, irregularly shaped blocks on a disc sander to represent rocks. The top of the box was constructed by gluing together the individual blocks. On the sides of the box, I cut grooves with a router and then inlayed the blocks. I left some of the tool marks on the blocks to create a finer texture.
The box is approximately 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” x 5 1/2” and is made of cherry. The ‘rocks’ are cherry and maple (end grain).
