Oh yeah, that’s really different-nice. I like the textured wood, the use of the leather and brass tacks. Good work. Thanks for sharing.

Now that’s something different! Looks great. I have heard that olive oil goes rancid and not to use it for cutting boards. Do you have experience using olive oil before?

Very different. There is a great contrast between the leather and the wood.

that is BEAUTIFUL.
It feels like the box is holding great secrets.

And your photography – really showcases the beauty, the colour, and that “something special”.
