The marquetry has a certain Arabic style. Might also be a good motiff for a backgammon set. I like the project a lot, BTW.

Wonderful work. You shoulda put the squid on the side too. lol Seriously, this is a work of art box and you should be proud. What kind of finish is that and how does the teak react?

I have been looking at your projects and find them quite remarkable. They appear equal to any found in a museum. I, myself, haven’t tried marquetry and I am not sure that I have the patience. Guess a person has to have a gift for it. Gret work.

The box is just gorgeous! I agree with kimball – it looks museum quality!
