This little box is a tribute to Martyn (BritBoxmaker) without whom I would never be involved in this sort of foolishness. Thank you Martyn for broadening our minds so that we might conceive of the very narrow.
The box is made from some micro-plywood I had left over from the larger box I built in my “microcosms” blog http://lumberjocks.com/shipwright/blog/19711 a few months back and measures 5mm x 5mm x 5mm. It fits inside the larger box with room to spare. The finish is WD40 ( and as I look at the photos, a little shop dust).
For size reference the boxes are shown in the company of the corn kernel that won’t fit in the larger box and the rice grain that won’t fit in the smaller one. I plan to use the large box to contain the small one and the small one to contain …................perhaps my sanity.
