Hi everyone,

I decided to make another box about 2 weeks ago.
And thought about making something similair as my ’’segemented’’ box.
I have a crate of leftovers from all the 3d cutting boards and they make great box pieces :)
I named this one ’’Inca’’ because a few friends of me associated the shapes with the inca’s architecture.
Woods are walnut,maple,cherry,oak and some hardwood pieces.
Measurements are;
18.1’‘x10.6’‘x4.9’‘
Tungoil finish.

Some extra pictures;

Thanks for watching!

Well, blow me down! That reminds me of one of those ‘relics’ that Indiana Jones might find where you have to slide the pieces certain ways to unlock the secret of the box. Very cool!

Thomas,

I think you hit a homer here! Your previous work has led you to this masterwork.

Definitely different and looks great. A new way to clean out the scrapbox and make a wonderful project.
Thank you for sharing.

That is such a cool original. I don’t know how you can invision all those intricate shapes using so many angles. It’s genius and very pleasing to the eye.

So. Much. Geometry. Wow, that’s a really unique piece. Never seen anything quite like it. The aesthetic direction it reminds me of is the Dwarf architecture in the LOTR films.

It’s quite a piece and very unusual. It will be an eye catcher.
