Another Commissioned Box, this one is made of Solid Curly Maple and Padauk. The Lid is of Frame and Panel Construction, surrounding a field of the same Solid Curly Maple. The client wanted simplicity, so I restrained myself to using only the two Woods. I indulged myself, with her permission, in a little Cocobolo inlay in the Lid, and some cute little feet in the Base. One of the photos is that which she sent after she got it. It holds a place of honor in her home at the workbench where her husband carves fishing lures, as I recall. She commissioned it as a retirement gift to her husband and filled it with letters of congratulations from his friends and colleagues. He loved it. I actually Designed, Completed, and Shipped the piece in only nine days.
This is an actual recurring client.
