The Penrose tiles are a mathematically derived concept which permits the covering of a flat surface with an infinite variety of designs with only two , or a very limited number of basic shapes. This design uses two rhombi, narrow and wide, to execute the pattern. (Google: Penrose Tiles). These tiles lend themselves well to Escher type optical illusions.
The box is made from select rock maple, and usually with black walnut perimeter rails. The box is 12 1/8" length x 9" width x 9" height. Making one of these boxes requires meticulous attention and is an exercise in precision fitting. These boxes are hand made and are original designs. Usually the client makes his/her own design from tiles I supply. This box was a custom order and has been sold. Contact me for a design when you order.
