Missed the inspiration your boxes give me. great that you have to replace inventory. it means you can be creative. I really like how subtle this box is and your crafting integrates it well!

Another nice step in the evolution of your unique style Greg.
You must be having fun because making this many boxes if you weren’t would be a chore.
My guess is that the challenge of creating new and different keeps you going …. and going …

Thanks everyone….! I always greatly appreciate the comments that yall take the time to post. They always keep the sawdust adrenaline flowing.
This wood combination worked together better than I thought it would at first. It came about because of a customer asking about a commission box with this combo. I had made Wenge boxes with numerous different wood combinations…but not with Leopardwood. Well, another combo to add to the “Future Projects” list.

Well, back to work….!!!

You really nailed this one Greg. It just be one of my favorites. The wood combination works really well. Well done! Do you only sell boxes at your shows, or do you have other items?
