Member Feature: Quentin and Daniel’s Hex Chests


Maker Works members Quentin and Daniel began making 3-inch hexagonal boxes as gifts for friends, and after their projects were shared online to an overwhelmingly positive response, the two decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a limited run of boxes.

“First, we hand-pick the lumber at a local yard, then carefully sand, polish, and finish the wood until it shines,” says Quentin. “We craft the basic shape on a CNC router, and finish them by hand to give them just the right mix of precision and art. We use neodymium magnets on the top and bottom keep the chests snugly together.”
