After a two year absence, two moves and a cross country road trip I have relocated my shop to Sarasota FL. This is the first piece that I’ve done in quite a while. I was mainly trying to tune up all of my tools and re-calibrate my eye hand coordination. I needed a break from box making and was influenced by the figure in the rosewood.
The front & back are solid rosewood, the curved sides are veneered rosewood over MDF.
It’s good to be back on the air after a long unplanned absence.

Very Nice. Is that the stuff from Sri Lanka? I too have taken a few years off to study neurology. Traveling around the country for class, studying, and still running a practice doesn’t leave much time for woodworking. I have a guitar build from the Sri Lanka rosewood that is half way done, and I look forward to getting back in the shop in the next month or two.

For posterity sake..would be good to talk through your steps on making so in case anyone else wants to make one down the road.

Nice look. I really like how you offset the top to add even more interest. Thanks for sharing.

Good to see you posting again and I hope you enjoy Sarasota. The “Elixer” is enjoying a predominant spot on my shelf and being admired daily.
