A local womens recovery house that has been a blessing for some folks in my life has a pretty big golf tournament and auction every year. This year I donated a box that holds a journal, leather bound big book and pen. Leopard wood and ambrosia maple.

Well done!
Very nice gesture on your part and sure to be appreciated.
I really like that leopard-wood but it can be a pain to work with at times.

Thanks all.

Andy, pain to work with is a bit of an understatement. It’s pretty brutal on blades but the worst is the slivers. Little bitty fine slivers.

Very nice gesture making this to help the cause and I hope it will do well at the auction to surpass the contribution you have made creating this box .

I had not noticed the worm holes, til Ivan mentioned them. I am enamored with the the whole thing. The “rusticity” of which Ivan spake has a terrific counterpoint in the Leopard(?), in that the Leopardwood(?) gives the box the appearance of being wrapped in leather or snakeskin. I like it a lot. And, I’m now wishing I had money for some of that Leopard(?). In case you wonder, the (?) is because I thought Lacewood upon first glance. Be that as it may, this is a lovely, lovely box.
