My latest box in the small box series. For this box I designed the sinusoidal wave for the cover using Rhino6 3D software. It took about one and a half hours to cut the cover on the CNC and another hour of hand sanding. The box’s dimensions are approximately 6” x 3” x 2 1/2”.

Another spin on wavy tops, really nice looking “box”!
That must have been difficult to finish sanding.

Roger, I love the continued evolution of your designs. It is difficult to tell for sure from just a picture, but I think I like this version better than the straight fins. In fact, I think I like each variation better than the last. It sure is fun seeing what you will dream up next. Have you given any thought to variations on the inner workings of your work? You might look here for some idea starters. Keep boxing and keep posting.

What machine do you have for your CNC work?

Phil, I have a ShopSabre 23. I had the machine is about 5 years. Excellent machine, very solid and made in USA.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
