Very, very, very nice! I like the wood choices a lot. The construction design looks like it was fun. The burl is a nice touch

Beautiful use of beautiful wood. I like the oriental flair and the burled top is a nice touch.

Beautiful Job! Is the rosewood that you used available in stock large enough for a gunstock and can you get it highly figured?

Absolutely top shelf. This box has so much going on and all of it works together. I have been using the pinned lid a lot lately, and love the back ledger strip. I hope you won’t mind if borrow your tagline as I contemplate my next pinned lid, I’ll be about scratchin’ me head then, sure.
