I made this box for Alison, a friend that gives much of her time to helping others.
The name came about from the patterns, grain and crevices in the ziricote medallion and handle has a picture of a mesa off in the distance. It was pretty punky so I dug out all the loose material and using CA, I secured the rest in place.
The body is quarter sawn white oak and various woods were used for the corner splines.
The interior was made with forstener bits in more of the ziricote and maple strips run fore and aft. It all sits on black velvet.
The finish is Deft lacquer from a spray can, is semi-gloss.
The hinge is my standard brass pin.
