I’ve been playing again. with CAD this time. I’ve come up with this. Not original by any means but I think it might appear on a box in the near future Any thoughts?

You may need to back off a bit to get the full effect!

Not a thought, but rather a question Martyn. Are you out of your mind? If not making and staring at this will make you even more eccentric than you already are! But then if you did not go for it you just would not be you.

So . . . GO FOR IT!

I think it will be fantastic, the lit will appear 3d round, and when you touch it it will be flat.
I look forward to see this.

Martyn,

I must apologize. I woke up this morning, saw this, and had a brief mental picture of a box in your studio. The box is empty, but what no one knows is that in the vortex of the lid are a hundred souls that are trapped inside. Every time someone stops to look at it, oooops, another person just gets sucked in :)

I definitely look forward to seeing what you do with this one.

That will be a challenge for you. The 3-D effects will really be interesting though. I would love to see you give it a try. If anyone can do it, you can.

I agree with Mafe. It appears to be 3D. I’d be curious to see what that pattern would look like in a lid.
There’s no one in he!! that I would be able to build anything close to your pattern, but I have faith that you can. I say go for it.

I’m impelled to confess.

The cutting board in my post above involved no sawdust at all.

I modeled it in SketchUp and then ran it through a photorendering program to get the image.

Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself.

Thats OK, Don. After a while something inside told me it was a rendering, a very good one, it was too perfect (if there is such a thing). You had me going for a minute though.

A materials shortage has made me go for only 1mm to 10mm (not 1 to 12mm as in the above) but the first stage is glued up and drying, now!. If anything I think it may end up looking more domed.

I’m afraid its going to be a box though, Jim. Slightly different technique to my normal one, but a box nonetheless. I’m not blogging it now because even I am not sure just how much of what I want to do is acheivable.
