That’s a really nice box. Are the shaped panels some kind of MDF or ply with the sapele veneer applied? Did you use a vacuum bag? I like the many drawers, sliding sections, and holders.

Thanks everyone for your comments!
Allen, I made the whole thing from walnut, the veneer was an after thought. All the veneer was hard glued on, I made opposite forms for all the curved areas and used an 1/8 rubber pad between them to ensure even clamping pressure.
Thanks Dennis, still working but slowing way down these days. Been making things for us and family.
