Another magazine idea. Can’t wait for the new issues to come out so I have a new project. Took a lot of work to get the 37 degree angles to match at the corners. I love the 3D look.

Did I see this at the GA woodworking show? Beautiful work.

-- ok, is it cut once measure twice, cut twice measure once???? I know....I'll just keep cutting until it's long enough.

Plane twice as much wood as you need so you will have enough to cut! It is a fun project.

Gloriously nice 3D effect. The title made me think I was going to see a vintage Zig Zag rolling papers box. :-)

That’s one very cool looking box. If I focus on the center of the top or front face, it does look pleated.
