LJ’s,

This idea I had some time ago. When an idea comes to mind I’ll try and make a simple drawing of it. This piece of paper I put in a large box and sometimes I look trough the entire box to pick one out.

The box has got mitered joints.
Woods: rosewood and maple
Finish: DanishOil

Very interesting box. I have a couple of notebooks that have 1/4” graph paper in them that I use for sketching ideas. It is fun to look through the books at your old ideas and perhaps this time an old idea for a project will come to life.

Nice idea. Just a suggestion, how about dovetailing the connection pieces into the sides of one of the boxlets. This way the configuration could grow.

Now that’s thinking(I mean building) outside the box. Yes, more pictures… “The northwest corner, the southwest corner, and not to mention, ariel photography”.

Really like the concept,as Martyn pointed out, You could add to this with several different layouts and even different sized cubes ! The craftsmanship and finish looks top notch, additional pics would be welcomed !
