For cat lovers. The design for this box came from an old jazz LP album jacket I saw. I found the cats and the title both appealing and I hope you do too. Thanks for looking.

I like that. But then, I’m a cat guy. Fibi helps me in the shop all the time.

Impressive work there Mr Oakwood !

I wonder if you would share the method you used to do the inlay work.

I did a chain link box some time ago and it took me ages to perfect the patterns to achieve a proportional representation.

So I appreciate the more complex work you have done

Catchy name for a beautiful box. Hope it’s not the “cat-box”.. lol. Jus kiddin. That’s a climber. Looks like it has as much fun in yer shop as you.

My wife and I love it. Those cat characters kind of remind me of the Pink Panther cartoon character.

I just viewed the original album cover and your version looks much better!

This is a true work of art – my wife would go insane over this box.

Great build!
