I have trie my hand at small boxes and so far I am on number 4. This one is in oak with stringing. The hardest bit was to get the corners right with the stringing, getting a 45 degree angl on a 1.5mm strip of wood was not easy. I made a jig, which you can see in my album which once you have the length right, allows fairly accurate corners. So far I have spent more time on the jijs than on making the boxes!

Nice box Ron a great little jig for cutting the stringing.
I also like the way you did the pattern simple but striking

A lovely piece. I always cut inlay by hand and eye.

Very nice work Ron. I also like the stringing on the top makes it look elegant.

 Very nice box, proves you don't spend all your time researching for quizes, did you try out the new blade?.
 
 I see Ralph has posted I hope he is getting sorted out in his workshop after the leak.
