Beautiful work.

I used to have a dog named Rusty, so this brings back memories.

That is so nice! I lost my lab almost two years ago and miss her every single day! The people who commissioned this box are going to have a wonderful reminder of their faithful friend, Rusty! I wish I had the carving/marquetry talent that you display – I’d do one of our Gretchen to add to her urn.
