Dimensions – 120 mm square x 60 mm high. 6 mm thick walls ( 3 mm core + 3 mm pattern)

The last image shows the black box and all the little pieces the patterns were made from. Here’s another taken during the make.
I’ve been off work with an injured back for a number of weeks and have only recently got back in the shop for a little, light, therapeutic box work.
