Nice Martyn. I’ll bet a kernel of corn won’t fit in this one either, but where’e the banding? :-)

Brad, you won’t believe this but I used my ELU contracor’s saw (with zero clearance pieces), my homebuilt drum sander (invaluable), a magnifying lamp and a disc sander. All in my workshop profile or previous small box projects. Its not what you do its the way that you do it.

Thanks all. I enjoyed this one but I fear the law of diminishing returns is in operation here. The more I tackle this kind of thing the less I get out of it. Hence it being my last look at the land of the very small box.

Paul, I got more than one grain of rice in it though, four that is.

Wow, that is hard to believe. However, with you Martyn, I know you’re capable of just about anything. Fantastic little creation!

Man, Martyn… I worry about you sometimes…
That is some tiny build, but I have to wonder what’s next… some fifth-dimensional work perhaps?
I’ve been sitting, staring at the size of that on a ruler… shaking my head…
Incredible Work my Friend!!
