    Small Box

    Small is right! It's only 3 1/2" square,made frome Maple and purpleheart. 16 little pieces in the corners. The top has a 1/4" rabbit on it and the bottom is inset at 1/8" and kept flush for a more finished look. Finish is BLO and Deft spray. Then beal buffed on the lathe.Was a fun project but for so little a box was a lot of time.Click image for larger version.

    That's a cute great looking box Ron. Getting those miters right must haven't been easy.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Kevin You would be surprised what you cando with a 10" saw blade if your real carefull.
    Thanks Tony,Just some scraps left over from other jobs but wanted to use them up. When people stop by I just send them along with them. That way I have the fun of making it and they enjoy it sa well,but most of all LOML don't hound me about all that stuff sitting around.
