Like Cupcake but a hexagonal box.

Construction – EZ Mitre (modified), Shell

Dimensions – 120 mm across corners x 52 mm high on a 6 mm pedestal base

Materials – Luan, Yew (English), Pau Amarello, Wenge and Birch ply (dyed black)

Adhesives – PVA, CA

Finish – Sanded to 400 Grit and finished with Spray Satin Acrylic

All mitre joints made with 45° and 60° router bits. This time I decided to contrast the pattern with a black interior.
The pattern hexagons are 20 mm across corners by 4 mm thick, individually cut, on a 1.5mm Birch ply substrate.

I’m with Thomas …. the bee hive gone all wrong.

When bees do drugs ….... or maybe What does that beekeeper put in his smoke pot???

Another sweet bit of geometry Martyn.

You nailed this one.
The edges on the top hexes are spot on.
And I like how you rotated the grain of the three pieces – sweet.

You are ‘da man,
