Walnut box.
All handmade without power in a city appartment.

Great box Jerome. I really enjoy looking at your work.

Good work, I know what you mean about the sawing part. I too have to re-saw with a Japanese saw.

I like your other projects too.

Great patience with the sawing. Incredible talent with the carving. Is the design of the letters original, or is that a published book?

Terrific piece of woodworking Jerome. Beautiful in all ways. Given your limitations, your dedication to the craft is really inspiring. Should make those of us with a fairly well equipped shop be thankful for what we have. Thanks for sharing this with us.
