I was given this rosewood veneer last year. A generous gift from a kind stranger. I made a small box as a gift recently and that led to this. The base is textured and painted poplar. The top is actually a shallow box. I've been making variations on that handle for years. The "crown", lis and handle are all box elder.

Steve,
This is the 1st time I have built a spec cabinet. I did it because I had the time and all the material except the hinging. ($35.00) and this Vision. I have a vague plan to use it as a marketing tool, and there are a couple of shows here in St. Louis that I can enter it in. The black textured/carved boxes are the only boxes I've offered for sale. They go for $160-$250. I don't spend much time on the inside, usually just enough to get a small storage space that allows me to call it a box. Most of those boxes on the site were made because I can't stop myself..lol most are given as gifts, but I have a sizable collection around the house.
