I finish making a second Hamsa box which is a Carole Rothman design. This a a gift a friend of my son’s is giving to his girl friend who lives in Brazil. The box is Cocobolo, with Curly Maple veneer and a red painted veneer, I turned the middle of the eye out of water buffalo horn.

Paul, this is exactly what I was going to say. My thought before getting to the comments section.
Great job Mate, I absolutely love it, Especially the eye.
Thanks for sharing with us.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
