Long Walnut Burl Hexagon Box, view 3
The Long Walnut Burl Hexagon Box is based on the “Tumbling Block” quilt pattern except that it is all walnut burl but for the six pointed star. It measures 4 3/8” X 13 3/8” and 2 3/8” high. Inside measurements are 3 ¼” X 12 1/4” X 1 ½”. There are 226 pieces on the overlay. The pieces are cut and glued in place, one piece at a time. The pattern covers the top and extends over the edge uninterrupted, to the bottom. The box is finished in its natural color with 5 or 6 coats of a clear wiping varnish, rubbed in by hand. The pieces are a bit over 3/16" thick, glued onto a Baltic Birch base.
This box is made from Hackberry, and Walnut burl, both native to Missouri. I lined the box with black velveteen.
