I call this my Flat “Oak” 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 238 pieces of wood cut in either diamond or triangle shapes from different kinds of wood. 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 “Walnut” and “Oak” from Missouri and “Brazilwood” from Brazil.

I made this box in 1996. 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.

You can buy a matching set of up to 3 different boxes with this design and coloring.

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

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.

Additional policies

Why are some of these things so old?

I did shows for 16 years, then had to stay closer to home as both my and my wife’s folks were living with us and needed more care. I made a lot of my things at shows and would finish them up at home. This way I built up quite an inventory of goods I would pack away in boxes. These are not like cars that wear out with age. They just set in a box and stay new. If when you get it, it is not what you want I have a very good return policy above.
