It is said that first impressions count, this one has done it. It’s an all wood briefcase in “Golden Teak” that was a Christmas gift from one of my major hardwoods suppliers in the late 80’s, for spending a lot of money (being a good customer). It has held up perfectly.

That’s cool. Try and steal that…a good swing will leave a permanent dent in their skull.

Before the briefcase, I thought an appropriate apparel statement would be wood clodhoppers. But fortunately the briefcase came along and saved my image.
