I made this box as a gift for my nephew’s baptism. He is also my namesake (Ivan). I played here a little with rhombus shapes. Dimensions 29×22x13cm (DVD – fits inside). It’s made of mahogany and ash. I cut letters and dove on scrollsaw, date -pyrography. Sides were joined with 6mm dovels, bottom 4mm playwood, opening 6mm metal shaft and magnet. Finish two layers of non glossy spray laquer.

What a thoughtful and well-done gift. The details are great and the wood selection really eye catching.

Math is definitely not my strong point … so rhombus equations are totally lost on me Ivan! What I do see though is one beautiful treasure for your namesake. Sweet!!

That’s a very nice box, I’m sure your nephew will make good use of it.

I guess making things that have 90º corners was too easy for you. :-)
