"Gorgeous"

Beautifully carved! Only complaint is the box is not totally level. It wobbles a bit unless I put something under one corner.

"Gorgeous!"

This was absolutely beautiful! It was well tooled, well crafted, and the wood has a beautiful grain that doesnt show well in the picture. In other words, the photo doesnt do it justice. The only detractor is the lock which is a bit dinky but it works. The person who made this is skilled and meticulous. Bravo!

"Perfect in everyway"

The jewelry box is exquisite! I will cherish it forever! Even the packaging was perfect. I wanted something decorative to hold my sewing notions. Somehow it should have a grander use.

"This is a re-order!"

That oughta tell you how much I liked this box! Mr. Sanchez is a gifted artiste. Other sellers are also gifted, but what I really like about Mr. Sanchez is that he doesnt charge as much as he could; his products are that good. The workmanship is outstanding, and these jewelry boxes are bigger than most others. Theres nothing wrong with the other boxes here, but la Jefa (my wife) likes the extra space. (Happy wife happy life — gnome sane?) This is the 4th box Ive ordered from Mr. Sanchez, and Im happy with every one of them. They make great gifts that look more expensive than they are. And now theyre as cheap as a tank of gas. Theyre even less if you drive an RV — and one of these babies will last you a LOT longer than that fill up! So, what are you waiting for? Treat someone... or even yourself!
