A mesquite keep sake box with simple lines and style. In keeping with the classic beauty of this wood; I wanted the style to be simple. All the checks and knot holes were filled with epoxy and sanded flush before finishing with a clear semi-gloss lacquer. A paste wax was used over the lacquer. The tray and bottom of the box are lined with green felt. The wood was harvested by a rancher friend, on his land in SouthTexas, and has been air dried for about 4 to 5 years.
