Lemon Wood Box

I bought this box from one of the itinerant Cabo San Lucas beach vendors.  The box is turned from Lemon tree wood and hand carved by members of a local family who have each signed the bottom.  The inside of the box carries a strong aroma of lemon.

The vendor asked what name I would like carved on the box, I wrote out the name of a Cuban friend, and within 3 minutes he had carved the name using a small knife with a curved blade.  He first carved vertical slices that would separate the letters and then quickly carved each letter.
