Asian influence again, this time more Chinese than Japanese. Imbuya, boxwood, spalted maple.

This is great and beautiful. It would be nice if you could share more details like the type of food and some build details.

Another astronomically beautiful design. The maple is great with such fine-line spalting, and much respect for the compound mitre joinery.

No. Just regular old lid. Not too tight, not too loose.

Thanks for the nice comment.

The wood is there – Imbuya, boxwood, spalted maple.

As for build details, there’s nothing out of the ordinary in regards to technique in any of the boxes I make. A lot of mortise and tenons, tongue and grooves, solid wood and/or bandsawn veneer.

Plan, cut, assemble, finish. That’s about it: not much to talk about, really. But if you, or anyone else, have specific questions, I’d be more than happy to answer if I can.

“Astronomically beautiful.” I have to tell you, no one’s ever said that to me before.

BTW, I see you live in Mallorca. I was in Vajer de la Frontera in Andulusia for ten days this past December. I have a good friend who lives there. That whole area, the way it looks, the lifestyle, the people, just incredible. And I’m sure that Mallorca is just as wonderful. I envy you.

Well, Steve, if you ask mainlanders about Mallorca, they would say, but it is SO provincial and backwards, why would you want to go there. Then, others would say, but that is just a neo-german colony, why would you go there.

It has its plusses and minuses. like anywhere. But I love it here, the food! need I say more? Ok, I will, almost all of our friends here are foreigners like us. And 300 days of sun per year is real nice. Then, there is the forest that blankets our land and the entire valley we live in, that you might truly envy.
