Harlequin is a pair of boxes in the style of my Parallax boxes.
The two boxes are 50mm high, 160mm on the long side and 80mm on the short sides.
One is Sonokeling Rosewood and the other English Yew. Side wall and top thicknesses are 7mm.
Box bottoms are 3mm Birch ply.
The lids are drop on and their pattern made of Sycamore, Pau Amarello, Padauk and Ebony.
The glue used throughout was PVA and the finish Wax over Sanding Sealer.

Staring at the harlequin pattern can also reveal alternating stripes after a while.
