I love mesquite and live edge projects and the last one of these I made sold so decided to do another. Dimensions: 11 1/2×7 1/4×5”. Drawer box of pine. Finished with shellac (same technique as the last box). Longhorn cowhide in top. Some fun facts: the recess for the cowhide was done with a Craftsman router that was made in 1958. The box joints on the front are to balance the look of the case and have no other function. The feet on the drawer keep it from tipping if pulled out too far and they add visual ‘Balance’. I’m almost out of mesquite so you can see that I had to piece some smaller pieces together for the back. Mesquite is hard for me to come by so I try to waste NONE. This was another fun one!
