This is certainly a nice looking box. The handle adds plenty of visual interest to it as well.

Cool, in the first picture that handle looks somehting like a leather strap. Add a buckle and I’m sure you would fool a few people.

That’s great, I can imagine a couple of ways of making that handle. Care to share how you did it?

I saw this in WoodSmith and I had plans to make one. I even glued up the woods that were to be the handle (lace wood and wenge). However, that was one project that got delayed do to the Christmas pressure.

Yours looks great. Congratulations!

It was my understanding that it is illegal to export Brazilian Rosewood and I know it is extremely rare to find some available here. I’m very curious where you got it.
