“Reflection” first came to me in a dream. Once fully awake I sketched and then drafted the plans. I have ‘bout 45 hours involved in the creating. Unseen is the neodymium magnets which hold the lids together. I notched and buried them in the two front cornerz of each lid and their corresponding surface before assembly. Basically an invisible magnetic latch. The woods used are cherry(china red), hickory(madeira gold) and walnut for the bowties. The 5/32” brass rod at the bottom was an after thought, just needed a little extra flair. This is a gift for my best friendz, (Mark & Dawn), 18th anniversary. Extremely fun to design and create!! Peace

“Discombobulate” was inspired by a clear plastic toy 3-D maze I had when I was little. It was about 2.5” cubed and used a .125” steel ball. This one uses 1” steel balls and is 7” cubed. There are 4 levels to get through before the ball will fall out. It does not open and does include a trap, which has been coined the “Marvin”.(Thanx Marvin for reminding me to put the trap in!!) Hickory for the cube and red oak for all of the cornerz, with black cherry and deep ebony respectively. My nephew Isaac received this for a belated birthday gift.
