Default Total Alumilite box

Made this box for my wife out of recycled alumilite from dripping cups into a mold. This is a year plus worth of drip cups. Alumilite doesnt stick together as well as PR, so i enginered every panel so its constructed like plywood. If you look close you see each side is different direction from inside and out.

Thanks...its about 8x11x5 deep and it is heavy, probably 4 pounds. Two laminates together equal 5/8 in finished size. Going much thinner just keeps increasing the risk of structural integrity failing. Pretty fun project.

This is great! Not nearly as heavy as I thought it would be.
