Yeah, it's pretty cool. He's been making boxes for everyone in the family, and I adapted his design for the stuff I was going to put in it.

I must say, and I never say this to a guy, nice box.
Design, wood and craftsmanship are all first rate.

Seriously, xoB, are you implying that you have said that to a gal?

"Hey, baby, nice box!"

Absolutely. But be forewarned, if you don't have her clothes off before you say it, you won't get them off.

Happy Monkey - Amazing, as usual. I love the color/texture.

I'm making another of the 700-triangle models. I've got a quick how-to posted.

Is this to go along with the fall season of crap TV?

When you fold each first triangle in a strip, do you just approximate the correct angle by eye? Or measure it somehow? It looks like the rest of the triangle folds in a strip just follow along after that first angle is established.

How do you do the alternating colors? Do you color each adjacent one individually, or do you set up some sort of "mass production" coloring like the blue and yellow coloring at the top of the image?

Umm... I just noticed you can click on the picture for the tutorial on flickr. Nevermind.

I haven't been working as hard as I could, but here's where I am so far. All 700 triangles are there. All that needs to be done is the final five joints, a few final wrappings, and a final coat of marker.

(As glatt mentions, click the picture for the tutorial/larger image. On that page, click "ALL SIZES" for larger versions.)
