There was some talk on the O-list about the puzzle purse – a very old fold, indeed. And being the wild-eyed contrarian that I am, I set about trying to make a curved surface version. I had some spectacular failures.
Then, I thought about this model and thought, “Hmm, this is more than a little similar to the puzzle purse.” Set about to diagram it and that’s a bit of a trip. But the first step is done.
It’s called Melon Rind Box because it reminds me of when I used to wash dishes in The Restaurant when I was a lad. The waitresses would stack the cantaloupe rinds on the plates, crosswise, when busing their tables.
