Titania, great job on the carving. I like this pattern. This box marks a departure from the square, plane boxes you have been posting. The window is a nice addition, as is the bevel on the top. It is difficult to tell from just a photo, but it looks like the finish may help to highlight the carving. Makes me wonder what would happen if you applied a darker coat, sanded down the flat surfaces and then applied a clear coat of finish on the box.

I can’t tell how the hinges are installed, but it looks like a step up in quality there as well. Would you consider adding a picture of the back of the box on your next posting? Looks like you are moving the design of the box itself along a notch. Nice job. Keep boxing and keep posting.
