"I saw the design for these cute little boxes in “Woodcraft Magazine” and knew I had to try making one. I liked the slanted sides, the small pedestal feet, and the domed top that add an elegance to the box. Also the box was joined with box joints, kind of unusual in a small box. I’ve now made about a couple dozen of them and am still pleased that people seem to be caught by them as I was.
Making small items that will be hand held is tricky. The fit and finish, the “feel” if you will, has to be near perfect or the thing is just firewood. A piece of furniture that sits across a room can have several small imperfections that will remain mostly unnoticed. A small box the comes to the hand is not so…any imperfection will be readily evident and unacceptable. These small boxes have quite a bit of hand fitting to ensure a wobble free top that indexes with the end ears, critical angles and curves that require extra care. And the box joint fingers must fit perfectly."
