My wife first saw this pattern in a “Wood” magizine, and immediately was enthusiastic about it. It appealed to me too, with it’s fun appearance and practicallity, so I built one for some friends of mine that were getting married. Fast forward many years and an inlay course later, and I re-visited it with the idea of doing some inlay work to make it personnal.

So far I’ve done two more of them and in both cases the recipients really liked them.
