I finish making a second Hamsa box which is a Carole Rothman design. This a a gift a friend of my son’s is giving to his girl friend who lives in Brazil. The box is Cocobolo, with Curly Maple veneer and a red painted veneer, I turned the middle of the eye out of water buffalo horn.

Paul, this is exactly what I was going to say. My thought before getting to the comments section.
Great job Mate, I absolutely love it, Especially the eye.
Thanks for sharing with us.

This is a very nice box and a real eye catcher.
