    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Very nice, I love the wood.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.

    Nice work, Les. I'd never heard of that wood. Very interesting-looking wood. According to Mr. Google, it looks like some type of Siberian crab apple?

    Cool boxes,I've never heard that wood either. Is it known by any other name that you can recall?

    Some web surfing is needed
    Best regards,

    I think Les may have misspelled Caragana which is a shrub often used as a hedge. Correct me if I'm wrong, Les.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    I thought it was cowhide at first glance I suspect it's this.

    Certainly is unusual and looks good.
