I really like this box. Sapele is a gorgeous wood and the inlay just draws your attention to the box.

Very nicely done.

Thanks for sharing.

This one is my favorite. I like the details and I think that the inlay work adds a lot of character to your boxes.

Thank you all…

Jon, I fell in love with Swiss Pear when I saw it used in Beneteau sailboats (the cabinets behind me in my picture are those cabinets) I have found a few pieces online, and even have found some veneer at Woodcraft.

Hope this helps…

Tom

Terrific looking box, Tom! You may have explained this elsewhere, but is there a special significance to Rockford for you? Just curious. Thanks for sharing!
