Bright Flat Box
Bright Flat Box
Vintage from the 1990s
Height: 2 7/8 inches
Width: 9 1/4 inches
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 2001. 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.

The carpenter wheel is one of my favorite quilts. Love this wooden quilt block trivet!!
I LOVE IT!! This box is absolutely beautiful! I loved it in the picture but honestly the picture just isn't even close to how beautifully crafted it is. The different woods blend so well, its hard to believe they are all pieces of different trees. The differing colors compliment each other incredibly well and I can already see that over time the colors will only become more rich.
Stunningly beautiful! A true thing of beauty. I love them so much! Highly recommend this gifted mans work. Even more amazing in person than the photos of the item you see. Hand made with meticulous care. I'll be going back for more. :D
