This one is still unfinished inside, not sure what purpose it will serve so I left it alone for now. The entire box is veneered, hard maple is the substrate. I used purpleheart, quilted maple and various dyed veneers.

Jay this is a very nice small box and I just love small wooden boxes. Congratulations on a fine achievement.
The marquetry is something I’ve yet to tackle. It would be nice if you would post larger pictures.

I trust that you make the box first and glue the marquetry to the box.
Please tell us how you do the glue up. I’m eally impressed with the way the grain follows the form.

No, actually the top and sides are veneered and glued up individually. Then the top is cut to size and the sides were cut to fit the top. The top was mitered into the sides to avoid seeing end grain.
