I am preparing a page to list and bid on the generous offers people have made (my deepest appreciation!). Meanwhile, here's something I would like to put up...

Shown Actual size, choose your favorite species, engraved with your name. I will etch the fish or scene we agree upon.

<font size="1">Hand carved by Juro Mukai, Your species and name by professional engraver</font><!--1-->

Bidding starts at $110 (box costs $60-65)

BTW - I carved this four years ago, it holds up nice.

Great! That's a good idea... it took me a B-day to get a box that pricey. Also, it might be good to separate the prof. engraving from the hand carving. I took it to Things Remembered for the lettering.

I can engrave any Okuma or Wheatley, or any other metal box that has a suitable surface. I will do the artwork only for an opening bid of $25.
