Rounded Triangle Box with Celtic pattern

Post by llwood »

Rounded Triangle Box 1.jpg
A container with a Celtic pattern on the lid. I have to admit that this was not my idea. Someone was selling a CNC machine on Craig's list and included a picture of something like this as an example of the types of things it could produce. I liked the design so I reproduced it.

Nice! :) Just the kind of stuff I like :) Good Job.
Got me thinking of box shapes that are NOT box shaped but follow the outline of a design :)

Nice Andy!!

I like the shape. What are the dimensions of the box? I was wondering if the underside of the lid is cut so the lid won't slide around when set on?

Mark, yes, the underside of the lid is raised so it fits into the pocket, as shown by this picture.

Thanks, Joe, Mark, Scott.

Dimensions are about 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". The base is one block of wood, about 2" thick.

Appreciatively,
--Andy

I like the shape as well, like Scott says a box that isn't box shaped :lol: :lol:

There is quite a bit of Celtic type stuff that this sort of shape would suit, have to go away & look at what I have already on file :lol: :lol: :lol:
