I designed this ornament featuring Australian bush animals. It is laser cut from plywood.
Each wood panel features a different animal – kangaroo, wombat, kookaburra and Koala, in eucalyptus trees. The 3mm thick plywood panels are backed with translucent paper to emphasize the outline designs.
The box measures 21cm x 9cm and is 9cm deep, and is laser cut from 3mm thick premium plywood sheet. There are 5 components to the box, 4 rectangular panels with cut out designs and a square base, each component has indented sides – these form the interlocking box side joints.
For postage the box comes in its 5 component parts (4 sides and a base), and will be posted in a cardboard envelope.
The interlocking design means the box can be built quite easily and a dab of glue at the corners will make it very sturdy.
I have written an illustrated assembly tutorial, click here to take a look.
Please note the ornament is made from wood and paper and is flammable.
Wood is a natural product, so the grain appearance and direction on each panel may vary slightly from the product images.
The plywood I use is premium plywood, FSC certified from well-managed forests.
