"Passionate and beautiful"

I bought this as a gift for a newly married couple. It is light (because of the weight of sugar wood) and beautifully carved. It is passionate portrait of a couple in love. Highly recommended.

"Received box with noticeable split in wood"

I know some amount of damage or differentiation in woodwork could be and usually is considered to be part of the art. However, the box I received had a noticeable split in it, to the point that I would consider damaged. I am returning mine.

"Beautiful decorative bowl"

I love the concept of the bowl made from hands. It is not as spacious as I had anticipated because the wood design is very substantial, but it is beautiful and will make a lovely gift.
