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.
