    Six Sided Box

    Hope I am doing this right! Not sure as the format is different but will try to muddle through it.
    I wanted to make some thing to use for the up coming hollidays thet would be small yet usefull. So I came up with this six sided box for candy,nuts,crackers,etc. I like the color of this Mahogany flooring that I have used in the past. It is very hard,much harder than other Mahogany I have used in the past. The dividers are of Maple with 4 small pieces of Mahogany for strength and color in the center. The bottom is of Red Oak and the top is of Mahogany,but is much softer and lighter color than the sides of the box. I have had it for many years and finally found a use for it. The knob is from Walnut.

    It was a little more demanding of my attention than a 4 sided box, but still was fun to do.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    I like your box Ron. I think your "support pieces" in the center are a good idea artistically and structurally.
    Whoever gets it will enjoy it for very many years. A great gift.


    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    The mahogany in the middle is the element of detail that really makes this already great box.

    Beatiful box, LOML said to me " why don't you make one like that" when she saw it.
    Best regards,
