Box #4 is called “Tuffet”. It is very small so it didn’t take very long to complete.
It was pleasant to follow a new design with 6 corners instead of 3, this made the repeated pattern shorter and therefore easier to remember but it was even harder to keep the base flat with 6 corners. The box still only has feet in three corners and to be honest I think it looked better without the feet.

I chose completely different colors from the book and I’m happy with the results, a small salute to Delfts Blauw. ♥
