Like Cupcake but a hexagonal box.

Construction – EZ Mitre (modified), Shell

Dimensions – 120 mm across corners x 52 mm high on a 6 mm pedestal base

Materials – Luan, Yew (English), Pau Amarello, Wenge and Birch ply (dyed black)

Adhesives – PVA, CA

Finish – Sanded to 400 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic

All mitre joints made with 45° and 60° router bits. This time I decided to contrast the pattern with a black interior.
The pattern hexagons are 20 mm across corners by 4 mm thick, individually cut, on a 1.5mm Birch ply substrate.

You nailed this one.
The edges on the top hexes are spot on.
And I like how you rotated the grain of the three pieces – sweet.

You are ‘da man,
