Another burr walnut veneered box, with maple on the inside. This was the second of the complicated boxes I made. Compartments and drawers make the inside more interesting. Some simple hand held fret saw ‘boulle’ cutting, to put names inside, was the limit of my marquetry skills at the time.

So very nicely done!
I very quickly get sensory overload looking at your work.
There is just so much to soak up.
..... I’ll just have to come back and look a few more times.
Thanks.

These two jewerly boxes are as fantastic as your awsome clocks in the beauty, complexity, choice of materials and heirloom quality craftsmanship. I love music boxes, as I do clocks. Wonderful work.
