This is what I’ve been working on since the beginning of December, though I first had an idea about doing something like this earlier this year. Its been slow to develop.
Its a reversible cube box with all corners (and the lid) hinged. It has a birch ply liner (keyed into the slot in the bottom of each side) which means you don’t even have to empty the contents when you reverse the box.
The hinges are Shipwright style .
My hinge routing jig is blogged here .
Materials – Sapele, Holly, Ebony, Birch ply, MDF and Brass.
Size – Cubic, 115mm on a side, 6mm panel thickness. Panels are 5mm thick MDF with veneered faces and Ebony edging.
Glues – PVA and CA.
Finish – Spray Satin Acrylic.
Here’s a short video showing how it works. I’m a bit camera shy, hence the fumbling, and the music is just what was on the shop radio at the time.
and a little slide show of the build.
Well my ‘inner child’ likes it so into the competition it must go!
