This box is a combination project spread between normal box making and the CarveWright cnc machine. The CarveWright etched the lion figure into the boxtop, at all its varios depths, after the image was loaded into my networked computer. The computer allowed me to adjust the lion’s size to fit the top.
Photographing the lion image was difficult. Putting lights at different angles was the only way to discover what was the best way to shoot. When snapped wrong, the lion appears to be growing out of the top. The image is atually carved into the boxtop. So, shadows needed to accentuate the cut depth. Unfortunately, the boxtop is shiny, and that kills the shadows.
Box-base to top o.d. : (10 in long) x (5 in wide) x (2-3/4 in high)
Inside cavity i.d.: (7-5/8 in long) x (3 in wide) x (1-1/4 in high)
