This is a retirement present I built for my office manager of many years. It is lacewood and figured maple. It is about 14 X 9 with sides that are only 3/8 thick. I built an other just like it at the same time out of maple and rosewood that we kept.

Very nice…! I know your manager will treasure it. The woods are a great match and the feet add a lot of character.

Nice work and beautiful wood.Was there some latent suggestion here that maybe the manager’s ashes should be put in the box?
