Love it! Is the design on the side specific to anything? It’s cool!

Is this Gallifreyan? The language of the Time Lords who are from Gallifrey on Dr Who?

It is Galifreyan… and it says: “Not all who wander are lost”.

Nice work. I have an affinity for the “roll top” lids!

Wow, I am surprised you got the living hinge to work that well in the proof grade. I haven’t had it work that well (the MDF snaps)

Where do you get a nicely designed version of the translation? I’ve only been able to find https://adrian17.github.io/Gallifreyan/ which ‘works’ but isn’t very fancy looking.

Such a lovely rolltop box. You can store your nerdy Whovian stuff in there.

I prefer Circular … It seems to make more sense to me. The version in the OP can be generated with a font (sorry, I’m at work so I don’t know the name of the font) which I’m guessing is how that one was created.

I have the linear font, it’s simply called Gallifreyan. Forget where i got it from.

I use both the circular and the linear Gallifreyan based on the project that i am working on. I did a cutting board in linear and in English that said “would you like a jelly baby?”

I think it has to do with the scale of the cuts. I have had good luck with the medium ply…

Strange. I’ve had no issues with living hinges in PG.
