Around the end of the year we usually have Humbugs. Sweets, mainly sugar, striped cream and brown, with a minty centre. These inspired this box
Dimensions – 118 mm square x 59 mm high. 6 mm thick walls ( 3 mm core + 3 mm pattern). On a 6 mm plinth/inner.
Materials – Luan, Sycamore and Birch Ply.
Adhesives – PVA
Finish – Sanded to 400 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic
As you can see from the third image all strips are of the same width. However in image one the strips approaching appear wider than those going across the field of vision. The pattern also appears to be divided into 3D cubes. Viewed from the side, in image two, they all appear to be the same width again and a square pattern (draped over the top edge) appears. Image four shows the side construction.
