Hardly a new project. In 2001 money was tight and about the only thing I had on my hands was a lot of free time. So I made this octagonal box. Inspired by the DNA spiral. Somewhere under all that dyed wood veneer beats a heart of pure MDF. Dyed veneers in Black, red, green, blue and yellow. I still use it, as a tea caddy.

David

I can sew on a button. Don’t let anyone know though.

I just wish my mind would work more reliably. I’m going through a good patch at present but its feast or famine I’m afraid.

We are in the wrong business. We need to be banksters, set the economic world on it’s ear and get huge bonuses. Go figure.
BTW I like the gene pool idea. Rand

Sweet box. Well done, and keep em comin’.
I am sure I am not alone when I say I can’t get enough of these.
