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 birch plywood base. The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the box from the center out. On this box is “Hackberry” and “Birch” from Missouri.

I made this box in the mid eighties, as it is not dated. On the bottom I signed it ,and listed the wood.

This is one of my older boxes, and the bottom edges are not rounded as nicely as on my newer boxes.

It is lined with light gray velveteen.

Go to my ”Shop Polices” and “Profile” page to see my return policy and other information. To see other octagon boxes I’ve made, click on “Octagon 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.
