Quiltboxes wood art pieces feature traditional quilt block designs executed in beautiful hardwood marquetry. I create these heirloom quality boxes in my studio in the capital region of Upstate New York.
This box features the Courthouse Steps variation of the traditional Log Cabin pattern. It is veneered in figured Bubinga, with Bubinga and Stump Walnut on the dark steps, Cherry and Tamo (Japanese Ash) on the light steps, and a Bubinga square in the center (representing the cabin's chimney).
The inside is natural cherry wood with a black velvet bottom, and black felt on the outside bottom. The box dimensions are 7"x7" square, and 4" tall, with a hinged top. The hinges and knob are solid brass.
