Very nice looking but have to confess ignorance as to what you mean by “Ramon bookmatch.” Could you please explain?

Wonderful, beautiful box. Really different too. Great work Superglueman! Would have been nice to see the inside too.

The Ramon is a wood that I used on both sides of the ebony center. I have no idea were it’s from. I found it on ebay. I’m still learning how to work this site, but I will eventually get it.
