A new set of Maple totes

I made these from a piece of Maple for a customer. They are made from Pacific Northwest Big Leaf Maple, with a quilted figure. The wood is furry sometimes and other times it hard as a rock.

Its like working with cherry that grows hair. Burns like cherry, cuts like weeping willow(maybe green weeping willow). And its like eating spaghetti with a white shirt on. Its the first time I’ve had to wash my hands to go to the shop.
