Tri-loop Out of the Box
I LOVE Challenges!
I try with each of my pieces to make something that involves elements I’ve not done before
Just for fun, I thought I’d try a box with no flat pieces & no 90 degree angles
“Out of the Box”
My idea had a rough plan but evolved as I explored what the curves wanted to do
Used Birds-eye maple and Mahogany laminates for the curves
The tri-loop base was bent with a jig I’d made previously
Body sections and lid for the box were vacuum bent using 2 forms I made: a ½ cone, & a dome.
Used Shaper O to cut lid laminates (4)
Used paper which was hand-made by my daughter as part of the lid
