I had a friend leave town a little while back and made this as a going away present. She was traveling from Iowa to L.A. and had to fit everything in her car, so I thought it a good idea to keep the present small. I found a nice piece of maple with a little curl to the grain, and used some padauk for inlays and for some details on the back. Finished with tung oil, and Fuhr water-clear acrylic varnish.
