(In the) Court of the Crimson King #1: Initial concept, drawings and how am I going to do this one!

It would make aligning the jig for recutting the recess less of a nightmare. But it looked fine. The handle is a piece of cut off from the Maple medallion.

POINT TO POINT #1: Veneer works - a new challenge

Though this has started from a new design THE POINT TO POINT and furthermore, I started building up the box. I am new to this veneering work. I am enjoying this.
