Very well done! Either you’ve been very busy lately with your carving, or you’re posting some past projects. Whatever the case, your work is very clean and meticulous.

I am more impressed with you every day. I love the pillowed look to the case. If you lived anywhere near Anaheim, CA I’d work for you for free, just to learn.

I bought a box very much like this in Crimea back in ‘97 – from I guy I met on the steps of some touristy place who marked me for an American and offered to sell me some (worthless but interesting Soviet) coins. I bought a coin or two – mentioned that I liked carved items and he offered to meet me back at the same place in 2 hours. I was going to be around, so I agreed and bought the box. I think my x-wife has it.

Yours is more crisply done!
