Oct Box Bright
This Octagon Box measures 5” x 5” and is 3 ¼” tall. There are 128 pieces on the box in the diamond and triangle shape. 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. The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the box from the center out. On this box is “Hackberry” from Missouri, “Purpleheart” from Central or South America, “Wenge” from West Africa, “Satinwood” from South America and “Walnut” from Missouri.
I made this box in 1998. On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date, the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on a foot powered table saw.
It is lined with black velveteen.
