I've had a couple of deliveries from Kris, but not a moment to post any pictures until now. Here's the current offering of B-29 boxes:

W
$40 each
Walnut bases with the following tops:
W10: Flame Maple
W11: Narra
W12: Buckeye Burl
W13: Buckeye Burl
W14: Buckeye Burl
W15: Purpleheart


T
Specialty boxes
T1: Myrtle box with Purpleheart top
T2: Myrtle box with Flame Redwood top
T3: Walnut box with Coco Bolo top
T4: Mahogany box with Macassar Ebony top
T5: Mahogany box with Pink Ivory top $175 10th Anniversary
T6: Mahogany box with Macassar Ebony top

Kris reports he'll be making another delivery soon complete with more Coco Bolo tops. They proved to be much more difficult to make and finish than he anticipated.

T5 is the 10th Anniversary box for his B-29 box design. He's making a limited number of these for the first time in Pink Ivory with an Ebony accent, each singed under the lid noting the 10th anniversary. There may be one or two more available.

M
$40 each
Classic Mahogany box with the following tops:
M11: Bocate
M12: Purpleheart
M13: Weng
M14: Zebrawood
M3: Flame Maple
M8: Flame Walnut
M15: Quilted Maple
M16: Flame Walnut
M17: Bird's-eye Maple
M18: Flame Walnut
M19: Flame Maple
M20: Purpleheart
M21: Bocate
M22: Purpleheart
M23: Zebrawood
M24: Weng
M25: Purpleheart
M26: Burl Redwood
M27: Buckeye Burl
M28: Burl Maple
M29: Burl Walnut

All the B-29 boxes are about 5.5 inches long and 3 inches wide. With the lid on, they are just shy of 2 inches tall.

As is the Alembic Club tradition, reservations posted on this thread are respected first (known as "dibs"). Email Valentino or me after you call dibs with contact and shipping information. We'll call you for credit card details so you won't need to email that sensitive information.

I know many were interested in the Coco Bolo tops, but I've only got T3 offer this time. T4 and T6 are on hold for Eiji, who gets first choice on the Macassar Ebony ones. Eiji made his choice, so the hold is lifted

Dibs on W15 (it's walnut with purple heart I think no??)
I think I'll surprise someone with a nice Valentine gift.
Will you please send me bank-account numbers. For the known reasons I cannot use plastic anymore.
I can send it by first class mail too.

Darn it, I was hoping I would be able to due without any of these boxes. But I can't stand it any longer! I'll take W13. I'll send email later tonight...

Mica-

You were going to save me a blue marbley-looking buckeye from the next batch. Looks like the only one left is W12, but I can't see it too well through the photo glare. If you think it matches what I was looking for, then please put it aside for me.

Thanks!

Sorry for the oversight - that is the last Buckeye, and it isn't the bluest one from the last batch, though it's still quite blue. I bought all the Buckeye ones Kris had, and I asked him to make more in the next run. I'll keep W12 on hold for you top decide.

We've had Koa ones before, Steve. I have to take what I can get - but Chip has been saving scraps specifically for box tops, so I'm sure you'll see some nice Koa ones eventually. W11 in Narra is close in color, but of course is no substiute.

Mica-

I like the ones that look like marble. If you think it fits the bill, then I'll take it. I just can't really tell with the photo glare. How does one pay for these things?

I think all the Buckeye Burl ones pretty much look like marble. Since the glare only obscures a small portion, I think this one may just not be to your liking. Can you refer me to a specific picture of one that you do like?

Payment is usually by credit card. Once contact information is emailed to me, I call for credit card details when we are ready to ship. Many customers already have details on file with us from a previous order and ask us to use that information.

Well, it was W2 from the last batch that got me going on the blue buckeye. I love the top on Dave's SS bass from the current FTC thread as well. In this set, I would have preferred W13 to W14.

As far as the part that is obscured, it seems to be a yellower section. It almost looks like W12 doesn't have as many tight imperfections like the others, which I think might make it look more like stone (a good thing).

I will just take it and not worry about it. Worst case, I'll put you on the lookout for another if this one isn't exactly what I was looking for. Do you still have my cell number for last week to make contact, or should I email you with that and address info?

By the way, it's cool how you grayed that text out...
