Under My Skin

I peeled back the skin from a corner of this plain box and what did I find…..

Construction – EZ Mitre Shell box.

Dimensions – 93 mm square x 57 mm high. 6 mm thick walls ( 3 mm core + 3 mm pattern). On a 6 mm plinth/inner.

Materials – Ebony, Bloodwood, Cherry, Holly and Birch Ply.

Adhesives – PVA, CA

Finish – Sanded to 400 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic

The pattern, whilst it appears to be a regular square one from one side or side and top, takes on a triangular aspect when viewed from the corner. I like the triangular Cherry grain pattern in the second shot, an unexpected bonus.

It’s an incredible box Martyn.
I have it on my favorite list and I look at it now and then. Every time I tell myself I need to build it.

I am happy to see you here.
