Golden sections and rectangles

I've recently completed a couple of books on the use of the golden section in design - yes I know I have to get a life - and made a couple of pieces trying to use the value as much as possible. This display unit is one result. It works both as a vertical and horizontal piece. 
About 6 " 15 cm tall
Here's a shot with one of Neil Carter's nice deco pieces on display. I have a couple of other units that I will take photos of and add here. There are some other examples shown in my modern furniture pages. I've also made some "clip on" led lights, so the individual compartments can be lit up. Putting a back on the piece is a good idea as it hides the wires - also means it's easy to make battery powered.
Same unit, horizontal orientation
