"The design of this decorative box is inspired by those people who bring us happiness with that great gift they have to play an instrument and move us with their beautiful music," Gaspar Mendoza explains. He hand-carves the musicians of mahogany wood, one playing the cymbals and the other the clarinet. They stand on a mahogany box featuring a hole on the back to push the granadillo wood drawer out.
Mendoza recommends the use of linseed oil when wiping, to preserve the wood's natural beauty.
