Nice cuts. Is the box top solid with veneer inlays or is it all veneer?
I’d say curly maple / mahogany and Maybe an olive ash / walnut.
Veneer cutting method? Knife? Scroll saw?

shipwright after noticing you are associated with French Marquetry, I hesitate to tell you but I used a silhouette curio vinyl cutting machine. It does a great job of scribing a line I finished with a hobby knife. The top is solid with an inlay. But as a shipwright you may appreciate that I did a complete restoration of a 1957 Chris craft Cavalier hull up replaced everything myself and a 17’’’ Micmac strip canoe with juniper/

Good work is good work, doesn’t matter how it was done.
I’ve restored a couple of old cruisers myself. Good for you on the Chris. Those old woodies have so much more soul than the plastic junk they build now.
