|1-7-2014 5" x 10" kami folded "on the fly"|
This Jack-in-the-B box is one of my favorite regular folds. A modern classic. I learned it maybe 10-12 years ago from Joel Bauer, who was taught by Tom Stamm. I don't remember if Joel ever sat down and taught it to me directly; but I do know he filmed a personal tutorial for me and gave me a VHS tape to learn from. His sequence of folding in the crease pattern made it so much easier than following the diagrams in the Kenneway book, that I remember.
This is one of those models that always gets a positive wow factor from non-origamists, and the common question: "Is that one sheet of paper?!".
The hinge on the lid isn't really designed to close; but it can. And with gift-wrapping paper, you can sometimes make it spring up pretty well, too.
Won Park used the extra left over paper of Hulme's 2:1 Jack to make a Jester's cap. Ronald Fujioka out here in the LA area loved folding Won's version. I think Andrew Hans taught it at one of the OUSA or PCOC Conventions.
