In the early days of modern gearing, two mating bevels gears whose shafts were arranged at ninety-degrees from each other were called "mitre gears". The configuration shown is also recognizeable as a common differential. "Mitre Box" rotates upon its base and stands 15" tall, 12" wide, and 8" deep. I will be producing a series of these sculptures using numerous wood types.
