The first project I ever posted on LJ’s was for a set of four boxes made for myself and three friends to commemorate the 30th anniversary of a house share, the Garden Avenue boxes.
There was also a blog showing how I made the pattern. Like most of the ‘top only’ patterns of my early boxes I have subsequently wondered (after developing the EZ Mitre technique) what they would look like in 3D, with the pattern all over the box. So here it is.
Construction – EZ Mitre, Shell
Dimensions – 200 mm long x 72 mm wide x 36 mm high on a 6 mm Luan pedestal base
Materials – Ebony, Padauk, Sycamore, Luan and Birch ply (Baltic)
Adhesives – PVA
Finish – Sanded to 240 Grit and finished with Satin spray acrylic
