Excellent piece of work and I love the look of the veneer a lot of work but a beautiful result !
What is the substrate and what kind of glue did you use ?

Amazing how such a simple appearing box can be so elegant. Very nice job!

I really like the felt detail. Such a cool color combination with the wood.
