Ross Dennis and I ( Britboxmaker) both work at Mole Valley Farmers (hence the name) and we often discuss both Ross’ art and my boxes. A while back we decided on a collaboration. This box comes from Ross’ original idea and my making techniques.

Its made from Padauk, Yew, Pau Amarello and Sycamore with a Birch liner and bottom, trimmed with Wenge.
Size is 114mm square x 65mm high (+6mm for the Wenge).

Michelle, it is me, Britboxmaker. Check out the MoleParty Home page. I have not intended to hoodwink anyone here. I thought the home page details and signing this BBM would have stated things plainly. Obviously not, my fault. I will alter the post accordingly. The reason its posted under MoleParty is that Ross gets equal billing with me. Anything posted here will automatically involve both of us. I originally suggested posting it under his id, Ross. I didn’t want to post it under Britboxmaker as it was his original idea. We both settled on a new id, MoleParty.

ps I also understand that there is more than one Ross, here. I’ll put links in (please have patience).

That is a cool design. Makes me think of a backgammon board.

Very cool design and build, guys. Makes me think of playing backgammon looking at the top, and going to the barber when looking at the sides.
