A box inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe tale, from his Tales of Mystery and Imagination collection.
Construction – EZ Mitre Shell box.
Dimensions – 122 mm square x 76 mm high. 7 mm thick walls ( 4 mm core + 3 mm pattern). On a 6 mm plinth/inner.
Materials – Ebony, Padauk, Sycamore, Holly, Luan and Birch Ply.
Adhesives – PVA, CA
Finish – Sanded to 400 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic
The story relates the murderous revenge of a man slighted by one more fortunate than he. This rich man is lured into a cellar with the promise of a fine sherry and when finally drunk he is chained to a chair in an alcove and bricked in. The box top shows the staring eyes of the unfortunate victim just before the last brick is put in place.
The last picture in the post is of Mr. Poe who inspired this project.
