Golden Ratio

Recommended Posts

I applied it to two of the dimensions for the box (top/lid and the front measurements) and I don't like it at all.  The box looks way too tall.  Thoughts?

 

Fortunately this is just a dry fit of the sides with blue tape, so I'll go back and reduce the height dimension.

I've got four of these boxes in the works, so box #3 has been pressed into service for testing! :)

 

Here's my rip down to 3 and 3/8 inches.  Final height will be three inches once I route the lift lid with a 3/8 inch straight bit.   I'm liking the look of this a lot better already.

Maybe it would have looked a little more proportioned if you had the height set, and used the golden rule to figure out the sides, instead of vise versa?

I don't care for Golden Sections in three dimensions. Height or depth always looks off in this arrangement. If your box had feet and a shallower enclosure, the entire object might follow with a Golden Section but the side of your box would appear shallower.
