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.’
The end credit music
Street Fighting Man by the Stones.
