Bacchus´ box



 This is a coffer with a huge amount of fretwork. The center of the lid shows the face of Bacchus, the Roman god of the grape harvest, surrounded by vine leafs.

  The coffer is designed to be made preferably with 4 mm. wood. By scaling the pattern appropriately other wood thickness can also be used. The following table gives the measures of the coffer depending on the wood thickness you use.
