Default Two smaller boxes

Just fooling around a little. Two small boxes. These are not well done since I was in a hurry to see if I could make something a little smaller than I had tried before.

First box is 2 1/4" x 1 11/16" x 1 11/16", made from Bocote. Found out his wood kind of stinks when you cut it.

Second box is 1 1/2" x 1 1/4" x 1 1/4", made from pine. Inside flocked.

I added a knob on the top of the larger box, made from a 3/8" wood ball, held on with a large dowel. OK, it's a toothpick.

Both finished with tung oil and wipe-on poly.

Please excuse all the pictures, had to show all the details.

Ron -- nice results from "fooling around". It is always fun to push the limit beyond what one has already accomplished.

Nice job on the boxes, I see you did some flocking. How did that go? I haven't got into that but I have all the ingredients to do it. Thanks for sharing-Jim

Thanks Jim. Yes, either push the limit or can't leave well enough alone.

Thanks Jim. Flocking is easy. Just started it a month or so ago.

Thanks Patte. They were small enough they were hard to handle. Not a chance to use painters pyramids for finishing.

Nice work Ron. The smallest I have made is 1/2" x 1/4" x 1/4". It was patterned after Karl Taylors puzzle box design.

Thanks Merle.

I cannot even imagine a box the size you mentioned. But that would be quite a challenge...
