Almost all the projects I make are for sale. The money I make selling them goes to charity. Last few projects went to “Make A Wish foundation ” .

I can make boxes-> somebody can buy a unique box->charity receives some money

A great combination!!

That’s wonderful, Rick. I admire you persevering with Wenge, I find it hard and brittle. Good contrast with the Pau Amarello and the Maple edging sets it off a treat.

Great project! I really like that it is a win – win – win for you, the buyer and the children who benefit from the money. Your boxes are always very creatively designed and well executed.
