Great job, Gene that laser engraving really makes it look professional, you seem to be getting the hang of it. I like the contrasting woods too.

Now that's one fancy wine box Gene. I can't read the inscription but that certainly makes it very personal and should be treasured. I can't imagine how the lucky couple will react....

Very very nice, Gene. It was a great idea to feature the beaded handle. I couldn't tell from the picture if that is a rigid wire, cable, or what that the beads are threaded onto.

Well done. When I first looked at it I didn’t see the chair in the background and it looked as though you had added a curved top piece.

What a nice gift, and I generally like a two toned piece, but this one is terrific looking. The engraving is the finaly touch.
