My fascination for this beautiful timber is boundless. Shown is one of my early projects quite some time ago.
The second picture is of some magnificent fiddle back cyprus pine.
I am fortunate that this grows about 100 miles from where I live.

Nice box and awesome piece of fiddleback. Has two fiddleback blanks sent down from Qld but nothing like your piece.
