This is a real-time blog, that is I am blogging as I am working on the project. As it is my own design I respectfully request that anyone wishing to copy it waits until I have posted the finished project.

The first project I ever posted on LJ’s was for a set of four boxes made for myself and three friends to commemorate the 30 th anniversary of a house share, the Garden Avenue boxes.
There was also a blog showing how I made the pattern. Like most of the ‘top only’ patterns of my early boxes I have subsequently wondered (after developing the EZ Mitre technique) what they would look like in 3D, with the pattern all over the box. Well, today, I looked into one of my spare pattern bits boxes for some reason.

After discovering these old spares it didn’t take long to figure out how to re-arrange them into an EZ Mitre board

I glued this to a 4 mm piece of Birch ply and I’m waiting for it to dry. More later

Be seeing you.

Very cool! :) It’s nice to find forgotten treasures such as that. Another good argument for NOT throwing out any small pieces that are left over from a project.

I look forward to the next step a great deal.

Wow. Scrolling up and down makes those patterns do weird things to my brain.

And here I thought I was the only one to have a box marked “More Bits Various” :)
