I call this my Flat “Bright” Box. On the top of the box is a variation of a “Rolling Star” quilt pattern. The flat box is about 9 1/4" x 6 1/4” and 2 7/8" high on the outside. Inside it is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1 3/8". I made it using 254 pieces of wood cut in either diamond or triangle shapes from different kinds of wood. I used the half size pieces for the “Rolling Star” on the top, so there are 32 pieces where I would normally have 16 pieces. 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, so hold up much better than a thin veneer.

The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the box from the center out. On this box the wood is “Hackberry” from Missouri, “Purpleheart” from Central or South America, “Wenge” from West Africa, “Satinwood” from Sri Lanka 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.

I lined the box with black velveteen.

The necklace you see in the open box does NOT come with it. It was bought for my Granddaughter from Natalie at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5070616 .

You can buy a matching set of up to 7 different boxes with this design and coloring.


The flat box is just right to hold some of your favorite jewelry. You get the box only.

Go to my ”Shop Polices” and “Profile” page to see my return policy and other information on how I make these. To see other Flat Boxes I’ve made, click on “Large Boxes” or whatever gets your interest under “Sections in this shop”. The “Home” page itself can be rather confusing with everything mixed up. The “Sections in this shop” lets me show you all like items together as a unit.

Payment can be made using Pay Pal for immediate shipment, money order or check. Checks will have to clear before shipment is made.
