Arimoto Bento

Back in early August, I took my third woodworking class with Pittsburgh-area craftsman Tadao Arimoto. We made bento-style lunchboxes. Bento lunches are typically several smaller courses served together in a lidded box. Often, the box has dividers to keep the courses separate. Mr. Arimoto's design was square, but he encouraged us to try other shapes so our projects would not all look alike. There were four of us in the class. I was somehow assigned to try a hexagon, which was not as straightforward as the square, not as angular as the triangle, and not as many pieces as the octagon.
