Creating a hexagonal Angel Blanco Self-Closing Box

I was toying around with developing a hexagonal version of Angel Blanco's Self-Closing Box.  I think the angle change I made was unnecessary for the collapse-mechanism of the lid. 

I'll experiment further.  This was my first try at doing it different.

What's that hovering in the air?

POP not as heavily attended this month. 

I taught Angel Blanco's self-closing box.

Twisted Box by Susumu Nakajima

Forgot to post this video, earlier:

I met Susumu NAKAJIMA at OUSA one year (2005?).  That was the year his Mickey Mouse ears/hat was popular (he brought large sheets of black/red duo kami and was selling packets of them).  He was kind enough to snail mail me directions to that model and a fish he designed- I don't even recall asking him to do this.

1st Sunday of the Month of the Year

Jared Needle behind a bottle of beer, behind a model of his labrador

I didn't get to Garden Grove until 3:30pm (fortunately, few left on time, at 4pm, staying much longer, past time), due to work obligations.  It was Jared Needle's first time at Marty's. 

Ron Fujioka traded out a few fresh dollar bills with the serial number "1701...", for folding dollar Enterprises.  He had acquired around $400 singles initially with that number, having remembered someone searching for such a number (that someone being Fred Upton, who learned to fold Won's Enterprise).  Apparently when he told Fred about it, the bank was out of them by the time Fred made it down to that bank. 

New album created for 2015 at Marty's.
