That’s pretty mind boggling. A while back a bunch of LJs were challenged to make small boxes. Here are some: Britboxmaker. and another Britboxmaker, Shipwright and another Shipwright.
You must have excellent eyesight. The detailing is incredible.

Thanks, actually my eyes are not that good. I made these the week I got my first pair of glasses.
Just for giggles, I went out and measured the stem on the wine glass… it’s a smidge over 30 thousandths.
Wow! those little boxes are amazing. Looks like a lot of fun. Kudos to the artisans.

Wolflrv – there is no such thing as too small of a scrap. if you cant turn it into a toothpick, you can turn it into a 1/24th scale model of a tooth pick.
after that – they just vanish.

A few months ago we ran an informal contest about the smallest possible box. You would have scored nicely ;) Welcome to LJs :)
