Here is a Leopardwood Box I completed today. The finish is lacquer and the bottom is leather lined.
The Louisville show is coming up on Oct 4-6th and as always I am on a box building marathon.

You’re on a roll. Did you get any sense from the last show of where the customers might take your box sculpting?

luv the choice of wood in this one..gives it a whole different look..maybe a bit more feminine than others? looks lighter? good luck at the show..

I would love to see you at your shop during a box making binge…. I imagine it looks like a dustnado with all the grinding. Beautiful work!
