Hadn’t posted here in quite a while. I took a veneering/marquetry class a few years ago, I thought I would post this since I finally put the learning to use. I run in a circle of folks that collect old antique fishing tackle (that I can’t afford) and sometimes they like to put their favorite treasured plugs/tackle in a nice home.

Dovetailed black walnut and maple/curly maple boxes with veneered tops of various domestic and exotic wood species. Trays of hard maple with matching self-created hand-cut banding. Brass hardware and leather handle. Three coats of Danish Oil and then, wax.

I don’t fish, but I would like one. It does have a retro look to it. Where did you get the leather handle?

Steve, I had quite a long Internet hunt. Finally put together the leather new “old stock” handles from us company with brass hardware from Canada. Away from home but can message the specifics in a few days if you like. There’s a decent looking one from rockler , but I like these better and came in at about 60% of the rockler
