Thank You All for the encouraging words. mmh, I made the boxes for my older sister and my older brothers wife. So far only family members have received them. . As for the building method, The box is 1/4” Philippine Mahogany
with mitered corners. The bottoms are set in grooves. The Marquetry is done using 1/16” veneer that I cut myself . I use a delta scroll saw using the double bevel method to cut each piece.

Again thank You for the compliments
