Flintstones Box

I apologise for the somewhat low-quality of this piece, but I thought it would be interesting and fun to make (which it was, apart from all the hand-sanding, of which I didn’t do enough), and it goes with the Flintstones tray I made a while back.
And, one never knows if something in there will strike a cord with someone and lead to something better.
It is, of course, plywood – 3 laminations of 4mm 3-ply. Then with protruding box joints of uneven size. Completed with “faux dowels” I made in my drill of 4, 5 and 6mm of jatoba scraps off the floor and mahogany scraps from the dump.

Not much more I can say – the wife’s verdict – “cute”, whatever that really means. Luckily I made a set of cup shelves last week, so I’m sort of “in credit” with making this kind of silly thing.

About 7” x 4” x 6”. Linseed oil finish.

All comments, positive or negative, up or down, inside or out, welcome.

Cute!

Very well done!

I like it!

But, are those Plugs covering nail or screw heads? They are so ‘precisely’ done! LOL

This is very cool – nothing “simple” about it as I am quite certain more than a “simple” amount of planning and build time went into this.

I would certainly be proud to display this box – good job.

I’m glad to see you’ve absorbed all the advice on your recent request for the doctors to beat you up and then say how to achieve great, capital G.
Cartier would be proud to have this as a presentation box, their customers would echo your wife as they gushed over how cute it was, how retro, how darling!
And I would too. For what a bold use of that most mundane material, plywood for the masses, made by a past master of some very interesting designs and sometimes silly things.

Well, I did, I confess, feel kind of guilty making this, and then posting it.
Since the doctors beat me up I’ve thrown away several draft designs, and a couple of others are still being revamped. Some ideas, I think, are just not destined to have the Cap-G, and this is one of them – but perhaps that’s the subject of another discussion?
I wonder if using a typeface of all capitals would be cheating?
