An end grain pattern box.
Construction – EZ Mitre, Shell box.
Dimensions – 122 mm x 95 mm x 54 mm high x 5.5 mm thick walls ( 3 mm core + 2.5 mm pattern). On a 6 mm plinth/inner.
Materials – Ebony, Bloodwood, Maple, Anjan (plinth surround) and Birch Ply.
Adhesives – PVA
Finish – Sanded to 240 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic
End grain was used for the pattern in order to make it more easily realisable. The pieces ( pic 5 ) were cut from two blocks ( see ‘The Chain’ for an idea). The last picture shows a CAD rendering of the ‘net’ that the box was made from.
