Well, I'm at it again. We are building boxes for charity, and this is my first one.
This is a box made from plywood. The lid is made by cutting the plywood into slices and turning it on its side, glueing back together, cutting on an angle and every other one flipped upside down to get this herringbond pattern on the lid. I've been wanting to try this for some time now and it seemed like the right time for it.
It's about five by eight inches and about four inches deep, a big box. Here's a close-up of the pattern on the lid.
And the inside of the lid, so the pattern is sealed inside.
I'm very happy with the way it came out.
