Well another week came and went. A few great classes and an exciting new commission that will re-visit an old design.

And just like that it’s Friday.

I started to rough out some cherry for the commission yesterday and will fill you in on the details next week.

It’s for a gentleman in the USA and he wanted a portable toolchest- sound familiar?

I know I have a plan for a toolchest around here somewhere~; )

stay tuned…

As for today, I figured I’d share the next installment of ‘Definitely Not Furniture’.

This week is another wood and leather combination in the form of a 13-in. MacBook Pro tote.

An urban mix of anigre, mahogany and leather with brass hardware and panic snap closures.

I’ve seen a few examples of wooden laptop cases and all of them were made to carry the laptop with little room for anything else.

This one is fitted with a removable leather lined panel that while installed, creates an area for the laptop and a front area big enough for a good size book and the power cords and accessories you need to take with you. Chargers and external drives etc…

You can remove the mid-panel for a full width open area if you need to carry something larger.

On the backside of the case you’ll find a pocket for notebook and smart phone.

With that, here’s the 13-in. MacBook Pro tote.
