Default waste not want not

Sorting through my scraps i found a laminated block that was an offcut from a previous bandsaw box drawer that just called to me and said "ring box, ring box".
So i made my smallest box yet.
Its only 2 1/4" x 2" x 1 1/4" high. Quite difficult to make with my fat fingers, but it came out nice I think. made from rosewood, ply, and beech.

Great use of cut offs/outs. Your laminations make it really nice. Like to see the donor BS box, too. Bet it's special.

So part of the box is plywood? That is a nice box. Will the next one be smaller from the scraps left over from this one?

Just realised I didnt post the first box pics.

You can see theres not much wastage. Shant be cutting any smaller boxes though. I dont do model making.

I use birch ply in between hard wood layers, gives a lot of character.
On the ring box I used 1.5 mm (1/16") hard steel wire for the hinges, set into blind holes in the lid and end pieces.
