A 4 compartment dovetailed box… first one… another 19 to make…actually they are made… just need to finish, sand, oil and laser engrave the logo…
Made from New Guinea Rosewood using the Gifkins Dovetail Jig.
Some of the pics show the work in progress. Although you can’t see it… all four corners have continuous grain…
Last pic as usual is a teaser.

Larry, it’s good to see you on here and it’s always good to see what you are working on. These all look great.

This doesn’t look like you are retired. Maybe that word means something different here. Very. Nice work as we would expect.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

As matt garcia posted
Ahhh New Guinea Rosewood!!!! you cannot beat it for effect workability and its aroma
It got to be a clear winner once you see the results of the continious grain effect.

Hey have you been spreading rumours about being retired?

-- Regards Robert
