"RUFFLE" dimensions: 8 x 8.
This design comes from a mosaic floor design in a 1500 year old Roman church in the Jordanian city of Gerasa (now called Jerash).  Woods used: redwood burl, English sycamore, walnut burl, and Honduran rosewood.

"WATER LILY" dimensions 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 
This design comes from a thousand year old mural in a Buddhist pagoda I visited in late 2001 in Bagan, Myanmar (Burma).  Woods used: cinnamon laurel burl, English sycamore, green turtleback poplar and ebony.

"GERASA" dimensions 8 1/2 x 8 1/2
This is another floor mosaic from Gerasa in Jordan. 
Woods used: holly and imbuya.

"TRIPLE CURVE" dimensions 3 x 4. 
These small boxes are great little presentation boxes and are favored for small pieces of jewelry.  The boxes shown use, on the left, holly and macassar ebony, and on the right, padauk and macassar ebony.  They also are available in a wide variety of other highly contrasting woods.
