I am trying to get as much inventory as possible for the shows that start next weekend.
Looking forward to the shows and it will give me some time out of the shop just long enough to have workshop withdrawals.
This box is marblewood with a taste of wenge’ thrown in for flavour.

10×7x3.75” and finished with lacquer.
gotta go get the charcoals started now for the grill because I have ribeyes and green onion sausage calling my name.

Looks great—very interesting grain with nice contrast from the wenge.

P.S. Enjoy your steak and sausage while you can, and I’ll enjoy my cardiologist approved salad. ;-)

P.P.S. Good luck on your shows! I hope you sell out.

That looks more yellow than your previous marblewood box. I’ve never seen any of this wood up close but I love both of the marblewood boxes you posted.

Greg, you have really outdone yourself with this one. You should have no trouble selling it. Is the “alligator” lining real gator hide, or an embossed leather? Either way, it looks good.

You Gator lining reminded me – I heard on the news that two of the “Swamp People” stars were arrested today in Terrebone Parish for Aggravated Battery – the Father/Son R.J. Molinere and Jay Paul Molinere. Supposedly beat some 24 year old with a beer bottle. Funny why the needed a bottle – Jay Paul is a Kick Boxer and RJ is a nationally ranked arm wrestler – must have been some bad a.. 24 year old :-).

HA,HA,HA No wonder you can eat ribeyes! I especially like the choice of wood pattern that sets the feet apart. Bring a big cashbox to the shows.
