This is an EZ Mitre, Shell box with pedestal base.
Size – 100mm square by 50mm high
Materials – Ebony, Sycamore, Sapele, Birch ply and green baise.
Glue – PVA
Finish – 600grit then Wax over Sanding Sealer
Black and white diamonds midway along each top edge (pics 1 and 2). The four sided shapes at the corners align to reveal an equilateral triangle captive in a 3D box of contrasting colour (pics 3 and 4). The diamonds now have one continuous flat edge!. Note, for the base I tried a slightly looser fit so no vent grooves ( as for 'No Quarter' ).
I prefer the tighter fit.
