Very nice looking piece. Where did you get the marquetry instruction? (Book, Video, Internet) I’ve always wanted to try this but have yet to find instructions that my pea sized brain can swallow.

The legs lifting the box up, give it a majestic look. I agree with everyone else about the scroll saw and excellent inlay.
