Great box. I was using Imbuia for a couple of years when my local woodcraft store carried it. I haven’t been able to get any for the last year. I really like the smell when I cut it. Where did you find it? You got some nice dark pieces. Good match of woods with the design.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Such a beautiful box.

I love the way the curly maple meanders through the imbula, sort of like a stream of water.

Excellent design and execution!
