The Idea for the pattern came from a parquetry picture off google.
The box was built using the Easy Miter technique from BritBoxMaker: http://lumberjocks.com/BritBoxmaker/blog/17048 Thanks Martyn!
The glue up was a big concern since clamping would have been very difficult. I contemplate hot glue and a variety of instant glue. I discounted those for several reasons: price, vapor, sticking fingers etc… I settled on hide glue after reading Paul’s blog on hide glue: https://woodworkingweb.com/entries/156-myths-facts-and-videos
Paul was helpful in answering my questions. Thanks Paul!
The glue up was tiring to say the least.
