I peeled back the skin from a corner of this plain box and what did I find…..
Construction – EZ Mitre Shell box.
Dimensions – 93 mm square x 57 mm high. 6 mm thick walls ( 3 mm core + 3 mm pattern). On a 6 mm plinth/inner.
Materials – Ebony, Bloodwood, Cherry, Holly and Birch Ply.
Adhesives – PVA, CA
Finish – Sanded to 400 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic
Working title – UMS (construction blog)
The pattern, whilst it appears to be a regular square one from one side or side and top, takes on a triangular aspect when viewed from the corner. I like the triangular Cherry grain pattern in the fifth shot, an unexpected bonus.
More ‘revealing’ pattern ideas are running through my mind as I type….....
