Zigzag Box

November 2016 Issue 243 Page: 44 Number of Pages: 4.00

For visual impact, it's hard to beat this box. A perpetual pattern tracing around all sides fascinates the eye. Alternating shades of cherry and walnut create the illusion of corners extending toward and away from you. Quilted maple–if you can obtain some–enhances the effect. Lift the lid, and you'll find the pattern inside the box, too. Even with all these angles, you'll enjoy straightforward construction.
