Thanks for posting it.

Like the way you have placed the box on a pedestal which gives it a much more refined look than if it was just the box. The combination of woods works well together and the variety of the joinery shows off your craftsmanship.

The box is beautiful. The wood is beautiful.
Looks like a little bit Nippon and a little bit Balinese – just what I feel.

It’s a very nice box and it looks greatly executed although I couldn’t help but laugh at Derek’s comment. Those who follow me will understand. :o)

Please show us more projects, what we’ve seen till now looks very nice.
