Chatoyant Box Woodworking Plan
Light can sometimes play tricks on your eyesäóîand this box proves that axiom. By gluing up panels covered in 3/4"-square cherry veneer tilesäóîevery other one turned 90ŒÁäóîlight catches each alternating tile's grain differently. The changing reflective pattern gives this project a compelling and unique look. But don't be intimidated by its seeming complexity; building it just requires a lot of repetition as you cut, tape, and glue each tile, then repeat.
