     Bob from Potomac, MD, submitted these photos, and feature our JB-101 stop hinges.

     "Yet another marquetry box using Brusso JB-101 hinges .... I'm a retired electrical engineer who now loves to dabble in making marquetry boxes of all sorts. This box is my marquetry interpretation of a sōsaku-hanga (“creative print”) woodblock print by Mamoru Makino. The marquetry was fabricated with hand-cut veneers of American Holly, African Sapele, Brazilian Pau Amarello, Western Big Leaf and Quilted Maple. The inside cover of the box was made from a spectacular slice of spalted figured maple with crushed semi-precious azurite & malachite stones. The box itself is made from solid cherry which will age beautifully over time to a golden amber color. The bottom of the box is fitted with a beautiful piece of imported Japanese washi paper. As always, I use Brusso JB-101 hinges to exquisitely finish off the box."
