Tom, that is stunning. The saxophonist inlay is delightful. That banding both in contrast and width is perfect on that lid. Just the right amount in my opinion.

Oh so nicely done Tom, the inlay brings smiles. All woods used come together so beautifully, and the liner is a touch as well…thanks for sharing ….BC

She’s a beaut, Tom. The sycamore is spectacular, and the saxman is a wailin’.

Wow, that is a fabulaous box, great style and design, excellent craftsmanship. The sax player inlay on the inside of the lid is great and highlights the fine details of this box. Thanks for sharing and the inspiration.

I hope to obtain that level someday.

Tom, that box is a knockout. I love the sycamore and the inlay of the sax player. Just incredible work. I have a question though. Where do you find faux snakeskin or real for that matter? Also, where could I order things like quality liners, and ring holders, etc.? Your help would be much appriciated.
