This was inspired by the ‘Family’ track ‘Burlesque’ and a memory of a fan dance I saw once in an old film. I made this box last August (2012), but I didn’t like the result. I think the Pear section at the top is about 10 mm too high. So I put it away at the back of the box cabinet and forgot about it.
I pulled out Zee to look at today and there was Burlesque at the back. I’ve mellowed towards it and so I decided to let you lot have a look.
Dimensions – 120 mm on the side x 80 mm high on a 5 mm pedestal base
Materials – Steamed Pear, Ebony, Sycamore, Padauk and Birch ply (Baltic)
Adhesives – PVA, CA
Finish – Sanded to 320 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic
The grooves in the sides of the pedestal base allow for air movement and so easier opening of a ‘piston’ fit box.
