I made the end-grain double tumbling block box top (walnut, cherry and maple) using SPalm’s project blog: and attached it to a cherry box with raised corners. Both the top and the cherry box are approximately 3/4 inch thick.The finished box is approximately 7” x 9” x 4” . It will be a prototype for a larger box which is the next project. SPalm’s step by step directions were quite helpful. My thanks!

I can’t believe that you do not have any comments on this project.
Maybe it’s not perfect but I love the design, it makes my brain go all weird, just trying to figure out how it looks like that but is actually flat.
Great job.

Wow! This 3D effect is mind blowing.

I like it that you made the lift-tab part of the pattern.

Looking forward to its “big brother” .. or is it “big son”. Successor anyway.

Like Bob above…. I think this is an awesome project and it should have made DT3 and have many comments. I love how it holds my attention as I try to make my brain understand what I’m seeing! Love how you did the handle also. Nice work!

Thanks for everyone’s support and positive comments. The precision required for this type of project is a huge challenge, while the end result makes it worth investing in it as a learning experience – justifying all the slight off angle and small deviations in thickness in my many “test” cuts.
