My first 2 boxes. One is solid Black Walnut with a Light Mahagony Pull and the second is Bloodwood and Maple with Maple pull. What was cool about the bloodwood one I was able to get a couple of pieces to make 2 Sierra Pens and since they were crosscut they were nice. I put one here to show you it as well. I had both less than a day before a customer bought both pens. Anyways hope you like them.

Seriously nice work on all pieces. The boxes are well executed and look like you’ve been making them for years. The pen is stunning.
Thx for sharing your wrok with us.

Nice work..Lois Keena Ventura has such wonderful designs.. but I think that the inside should also have at least one coat of finish…
The pen is stunning…

The insides of my boxes have the same amount of finish as the outside. I aplly the flock last in the drawers. But I agree.

I have both books scanned as a PDF so my originals don’t get worn out. Helps to print the patterns any size I want.
