The shows start next week and I am as ready as I can get. I have to pack everything up and start leading the van.
This box is another Leopardwood piece with a insert of some spalted oak I had. I like the effect it adds instead of just another all leopardwood box.
I used this pattern again because I like it and I am interested to see how it sells.

It is a fairly small box at 8×5x 3-1/8”
finished in lacquer and the bottom is lined with alligator leather.

Greg,
I like your latest series of “Deco” inspired boxes. Nice work.

Another winner! Is that design pretty close to the New Mexico state flag?
