I just completed this box for the show I am doing in Houston this October. This one is Rosewood with maple shoes. The last Rosewood box I finished sold immediately and if this one does not sell before the show it will be displayed there. I do, however, have mixed thoughts about selling it before the show since I would like to have a Rosewood one to display for commission purposes.
The box is 12×7x4 and has 10 coats of lacquer priior to buffing and waxing. This rosewood produces a real nice finish and was hard to photograph because of so much reflection after the final buffing. You can actually see the reflection of the trees in the first photo and this is a reflection through a window behind me. I could not get a true appearance photo on this one even after taking about 60 photos.
The bottom has a alligator like hide lining.
Thanks for looking.
