#1 Making a Tiny Sq Box
I recently started using some Brazilian Satinwood that has perfect satinwood markings on the surface of the wood, so I thought I had to make several tiny boxes with some of it. All of my boxes are put together basically the same. The larger boxes I do lay out the pieces on the top out to the last row that goes over the edge. On the larger boxes I then measure out and cut it to shape then, they are not always the same.
On this box I wanted the same coloring as on my other Sri Lanka Satinwood box, the only difference is that I’ll start this one off with Wenge in the center. I would then use Pink Ivory, Black Palm (cut on an angle to give the dots of the end grain an elongated look to make it more interesting), Purpleheart and then Satinwood. I will use the Aunt Sukeys Choice quilt pattern on the top. It will have a mixture of half size pieces on the top and full size pieces on the sides. This first picture shows the different woods in the different size of strips that I will be using, along with the jig I use to cut the full size triangle. I have 3 other jigs I will use to cut the other 3 type of pieces on the box. (You can find more on the jigs and cutting my pieces on my “How I Make a Lazy Susan” set (or Blog))
