They came all the way from Ohio, US to the west coast. I was ecstatic when I received his package. They look, feel and smell simply amazing. Lines are simple. and elegant. I don’t know if he treated the wood, but the grain is smooth yet texture is very much felt. And most surprisingly, the waft of Padauk really adds personality to the cases. Arguably the 2 cases he cut are prototypes. They did not have all the features we wished due to limited time we had. They look absolutely gorgeous.
