A while back (546 days ago) I posted a project called Windmill . Recently I wondered what it would look like if the pattern spilled over from the top to the sides as well. This is the result.

This is a double skinned, EZ Mitre box with drop on lid.

Dimensions – 100mm square x 62mm high. Wall thickness 6mm (2×3mm)

Materials – Padauk, Purpleheart, Yew, Pau Amarello and Quarter sawn Sycamore.

Adhesive – PVA

Sanded to 400 grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic

Martyn,

That is incredible

The grain must just glisten

Your cuts are tight.

Forgot to add these. Both sides of the board it was made from, before it was mitred.

and the original Windmill

For this one I substituted Yew for the original Sycamore on the outside.

The original one looks REALLY familiar…........ I have seen it recently I think.

Taking it the rest of the way is even finer than the original – I would be placing that one out front where everyone can see it!

Great Job as always!

I like the spill over around the corners..neat you can think ahead like that..if i did it, it would have been an error !

Very cool, Martyn! With everyone complaining about the heat, I think “Windmill” was an appropriate title for this one. Excellent! :)

Knowing how the camera never picks up the actual look and “feel” of the wood on my projects, this one must be absolutely vibrant in person. Stunning!

Is there no end to your imagination?
This is another sweet little brain exercise Martyn.
Your attention to detail always shows through.

The only way I could make color run around a box like that would be with tape and a spray can. I am still puzzling over putting tab A into slot B ... wait … slot A.

Yet another great one. I’m wondering what you would come up with if you designed a new project under the title of “Imagination”?
