"The second in the Havanas Box series is named the "Heather", after the one of the friendly part-timers behind the bar. It's a step up in difficulty from the first box...easy enough to get started but then a few moves in you hit a wall. The solution is fairly unique and I think it will be a lot of fun to discover. Tough to say much more about it without giving a lot away...all I can say is pay attention and the solution will match your observations. This box is milled from solid quartersawn sapele panels for stability. The wood shows a nice moire under the light. The top and bottom panels are veneered with quilted sapele and either bleached lacewood or quilted primavera. The fit is quite good, intentionally loose by a couple thousandths since it's very dry in the shop right now." -Eric Fuller
