I call this my “Tiny Square Original” Box. On the top of the box is an Aunt Sukeys Choice quilt pattern. The square box is about 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and 2 1/2" tall. Inside it is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 1 1/2". I made it using 92 pieces of wood cut in either diamond or triangle shapes from different kinds of wood. I used the half size pieces for the “Aunt Sukeys choice” pattern on the top, so there are 40 pieces where I would normally have 20 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 they 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 “Purpleheart” from Central or South America, ”Wenge” from West Africa, “Satinwood” from Sri Lanka, “Lacewood” from Australia, 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.

You can buy a matching set of up to 5 different boxes with this design and coloring.
