Very nice Martyn. I like the crown/fool combination, it seems to go well together (excepting for your queen of course).

I liked it before I even saw the photo… as the title is cool. But yeah…. the box is outstanding, too.

Martyn,

As always, a great job!

I love the contrast – especially the uprights against the box-top squares.

Did you wonder or even try to see what it would have looked like with the sides matching the top squares?

Keep up the great work!

Bob, some 3D CAD models showing variation

So, yes, I did look into matching squares but I liked this variation best.
