I wanted to make a bunch of 3d patterns, but i didnt feel like making a bunch of cutting boards. 75 hours later here we are. The corners are all birds mouth joinery, and were a royal pain to join 3 corners.

Very nice! I’m a little cross-eyed after looking at this one.
Is this veneer or solid? In either case, nice work.

Well, that’s just plain impressive! What is possibly cool enough to go inside a box that awesome?

Nicely done indeed. A tour de force of optical illusion.
