Just finished this box yesterday. It is another for my show this month and a show in May. .
The wood is Cocobolo and I used Marblewood & Bloodwood for the handle. I always like to use a different wood for the handle cause I think it adds a nice touch.

This box only needs one photo Greg.

Breathtaking!

This box needs a box of preservation.

Thanks everyone…
Tokolosi…I noticed you are in San Diego…beautiful city and have been there many times since i was a little kid. My son has lived there for a few years and works for Sony but he just moved to Los Angeles to work in their studio there.

I did get a new Nikon DSLR recently..the camera is fine…it is apparently the little SD card that is bad. Going to Radio Shack to get a new one.

Another beaut Greg. Aside from the fantastic box, that wood is just sensational and I think you are getting the most out of it with your box design.

Exquisite Greg! Both the execution and the wood are magical. What wood is it?

What a beautiful piece of work. How much time do you have in a box like that?
