Dimensions

Height: 2 3/8 Inches; Width: 8 3/8 Inches

The Small Walnut Hexagon Box is based on the “Tumbling Block” quilt pattern except that it is all walnut burl but for the six pointed star. It measures 4 3/8” X 8 3/8” and 2 3/8” high. Inside measurements are 3 ¼” X 7” X 1 ½”. There are 154 pieces on the overlay. The pieces are cut and glued in place, one piece at a time. The pattern covers the top and extends over the edge uninterrupted, to the bottom. 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 pattern has the illusion of a lot of blocks but there are as many stars as there are blocks. The design forces you to see the blocks. On each diamond, if you go to the side you are in the middle of a block. At each point you are in the middle of a star that has 6 points. In the following picture on my Flickr site, I have the star outlined;

This box is made from “Hackberry, and Walnut Burl, both native to Missouri.

This box was made in 2012. 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.
