This is my absolute last box that I am making before my upcoming show. It has been a marathon …as it always seems to be… and for my wife and I heading out to the show is a break and lots of fun…!

This box is made from some beautiful quarter sawn oak that I have been having in my shop for about 5 years. The accents are Rosewood and the lift is Padauk. I really like this combination and it ended up being a pleasant surprise when I applied the first coat of lacquer.

Once again, simple and sleek design. Great color combinations. It just has a sophisticated look to it.

Very, very attractive box—another good seller I’d predict.

Compliments. Another interesting lift design. I like it. I always struggle with these. You may be a contender with jbschutz for variety of nice lift designs! LOL Keep ‘em coming.

Thank you everyone…! We are not leaving for Louisville until tomorrow but I have been experiencing workshop withdrawals already… I think I can hear my tools talking to me. Seriously though, a short break is good every so often and we do enjoy the travel and doing the shows. Of course, it is always good to carry a bag of sawdust and woodchips to wear around my neck.

My wife and I are looking forward to having dinner Saturday evening with a couple of Lumberjocks…Boxguy and Roger. This will make it an extra special trip.
