Absolutely beautiful!! But they should take the ‘easy’ out of EZ Mitre. Your boxes are evolving with each and every one.

Nice Martyn.
The extra dimension adds an extra dimension. Very attractive.

Great Job Martyn… To me, it has an Aztec look to it (can’t even explain why)... I likes it!!

Another classic! I’d say the mitre was easy, the rest…not so much!

As always Martyn, a never-ending design of boxes. But this one is making me another question specially on the mitering. Sure the stripes have added strength on the ply. Thanks for bringing my mind back to boxes.
