A Jewel

Work is flowing in and out of the shop! 

Here is a recent custom project I have been designing and building for an awesome client in Austin, TX. He wants to 'wow' his wife with this incredibly meaningful gift.

Together they traveled to Scotland and saw the Kelpie tombstone below. We used this image for the main inlay in the top. Every bit of inlay supports the water horse and Celtic theme. I even carved the pulls like waves of water. The box turned out beautifully!

The Kelpie (water-horse) design on the top was inspired by a gravestone in Scotland:

I hope it will hold her finest pieces and bring her peace and joy when she reaches into it at the beginning and at the end of each day.

As my professor said "she is one very lucky woman".

Enjoy life today!
