Storm at Sea Cube Box
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.
The quilt pattern on this box is called Storm at Sea. It has a great illusion of curves and movement. The woods are a rich fumed Etimoe and a figured Beech.
The inside is natural cherry wood with a black velvet bottom, and black felt on the outside bottom. The box dimensions are 5"x5"x5", and it has a lift-off top. A small registration “bump” inside orients the lid so the grain and figure in the wood are aligned across the opening of the box.
The bottom of this box, when open, is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" wide inside, and 3" deep. The lid is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" inside, and 7/8" deep. When closed, the height of the interior would be 3 7/8".
