    A Box with a curl.

    Yet another try at bent segment assembly.

    There are some 52 images of the process of assembling this box on the UKW forum if anyone is interested.
    May need to scroll down a few pages from the first image to see the rest.


    Late edit: The Laminated Swirl Lidded Box now has a WIP page.

    Great stuff, Chas. I finally had a chance to go through the photo series on the UKW forum, and I really appreciate you taking the time to document and explain the process.
