Oct Box High Light behind Star
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 “Walnut” and “Cedar” from Missouri.
This box looks like it has a light behind the star. The extra matching of the grain on the side, where the cedar heartwood meets the sapwood, gives this box a higher price.
It is lined with black velveteen.
