This box was made to hold various pieces of stationery. It has been veneered with ripple sycamore and elm burr inlays. Fitted out with 2 rosewood trays and lined in tan suede. The finish is a pre-cat satin.

Merry Christmas.

Great-looking box. The line work in the veneering is superb. The trays fit well with the design, too.

Really elegant all the way around. Really like how you did the inner trays. Gr8 wood combos as well.

Ian,
Lovely piece, as usual. Really nice combination of colors, lines and textures. I like it a lot.

From the perfectly executed inlay to the sumptuous interior (nicely contrasted with the stark elegance of the exterior) this is a box of the highest quality. Thank you for showing it, Ian.

Dave took my words – clean, crisp, beautiful lines, uncluttered. Super!
