The design is a copy of a handmade sample that I had seen earlier. My good friend Bill Lisica who is a master on CNC routing helped me with the programming and making the fixtures. Seeing the work of Trifern encouraged me to try his finishing techniques that he so kindly shared with us. All are made of curly maple accept one carved from a chunk of Myrtlewood. You will also notice the Spectraply used on the bottom of one.
I made the purses on a cnc router carving both inside and outside contours. I glued ring shaped magents in the recessed pockets in both the top and the bottom creating a nice secure fit. The top slides up and down the the 1/4 inch leather bolero strap.
Not very large but suitable for a special night out. So far I am getting rave reviews. My lovely grandaughter Chloe got the first one and her stamp of approval is all I need.
Several other designs are in the hopper. Thanks for looking
