...all in my brain.
Construction – EZ Mitre Shell box.
Dimensions – 102 mm square x 51 mm high. 6 mm thick walls ( 6 mm core + 3 mm pattern). On a 6 mm plinth/inner.
Materials – Purpleheart, Pau Amarello, English Yew and Birch Ply.
Adhesives – PVA, CA
Finish – Sanded to 400 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic
Inspired by the music of Jimi Hendrix and a few beers.
In an effort to bring out the purple in the freshly sanded wood I put this in the window to expose it to the UV rays of our local star. Unfortunately, due to the heat, the wood also dried significantly and the tight joints of the four quadrants of the top are now gaping! (pic 3) May try placing it in the bathroom to help it recover.
