This is a hexagonal box with three legs and a drop in lid.
Since the original post I have made changes to the lid, which I was not happy with. I’m happy with it now
Dimensions – 125mm high x 110mm across corners. Box, 50mm long sides x 60mm high
Materials – Indian Ebony and Padauk
Adhesives – PVA and Viscous CA
Finish – Spray Satin Acrylic
The curved legs are 3mm thick x 6mm wide, made of three 1mm bent laminations of Padauk.
They are set in a 2.5mm deep slot in the box side.
I must admit that after a small accident in construction I ‘winged’ this, making it up as I went along
The legs were inspired by the film V for Vendetta. I liked the political and moral points made by this not the violence but as John F. Kennedy once said
‘Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.’
