Some more interesting wooden boxesPosted: October 28, 2014
Unlike the other boxes that I have bought, these were not square, rectangular, or hexagonal in shape; they were long with rounded ends and came in two sizes, large (about 6″/15cm long and 3.25″/8cm wide) …
… and small (about 4″/10cm long and 2.25″/6cm wide).
The larger box has sides that are 2.75″/7cm tall (the bottom being 2″/5cm tall and the lid 0.75″/2cm tall) and the smaller box has sides that are 1.5″/4cm tall (the bottom being 1″/2.5cm tall and the lid 0.5″/1.5cm tall).
My first thoughts on seeing the boxes was that if the lids and bottoms were separated, they could both be used as the basis for model ship hulls, particularly small merchant ships, oared galleys or gunboats. The prospect of using these boxes to build such models will certainly provide me with something to think about over the coming winter months.
