or Oops I did it again!

This is an extremely small box, 6mm in diametre and 6mm high (1/4”). 1/80th of a cubic inch (1/6th cc) in volume.
The Q tip is for scale. As you can see it fits inside Omega, my last smallest box.

Made from Ebony with a Sycamore lid. The inside is 4mm in diametre x 3mm high. Enough for several grains of sand or several billion Quarks.

No glue and a wax finish.

Start to finish it took a little over an hour to make and if you’re really nice I might just tell you how I did it.

Warning! Do not go too close to the Event Horizon as people sucked inside are rarely retrieved!

Obviously Dez, the next cool little box.

Is this a challenge Martyn? If so , I accept.

Very nicely done.

Actually looking at it, it could be a very small Guiness for a Lepracaun.

As for a challenge, Paul please, be my guest.

Once again, the Boxologist has produced yet another challenging box. I have to smile at that one.

My theory is that he simply made an extremely large Q-tip and ruler just to throw us all off!

Martyn, if you can get this to absorb neutrinos, you would have the fanciest energy harvesting system of the whole universe.

Game on for me too, I see bits of spalted wood on my desk that scream for use.

Hey Martyn,
Looks sweet.

About the size of a pencil, huh?
Gotta think about that.

That sure is a lot of physics for one little box.
