Amish Star in Tamo and Makore
This is the vintage quilt pattern Amish Star. When wrapped around this box, you really see the extra star emerging at the corners. On a shelf or table, you can see the pattern from any direction.
This 5" cube with a lift-off lid is veneered with Makore crotch and Tamo (Japanese Ash). The inside is Cherry with a black velvet interior bottom, and black felt on the outside base.
A small registration “button” orients the top so the grain and figure in the wood stay aligned when you close the box.
