Not well known for its refined artifacts, horror cinema still has some treasures. Among them is the emblematic box from the film Hellraiser. A real jewel of goldsmith's art, it comes in the form of a puzzle cube made of gold and mahogany wood, capable of opening the doors of another dimension. Both superb and essential to decorate a shelf of films or movie figurines, its replicas are unfortunately often sold out of price... Wishing to make a small base for the villain's figurine of the movie, here is a small tutorial to show you how at a low price and in a very simple way, I created this pretty cube with the basic material I had on hand, while keeping the elegance that characterizes it !
