Default Koa Box in work

I am working on adding some pics of other projects. I don't have workflow pics, and I don't have pics of lots of my work but I'll start posting what I have that I think is interesting.

Here are some pics of a small Koa box I have been working on. the construction of the box is straightforward, but I have been struggling with the mirror-like high gloss finish for a few weeks. I like the appearance of the fiddleback Koa on all surfaces of the box, inside and out.

One day, someone showed me a glass of water that was half full. And he said, "Is it half full or half empty?" So I drank the water. No more problem.
