Nice work. I’ve heard those Kehoe jig floating dovetails are amazingly strong and pretty easy to learn. The Celtic cross is beautiful. What did you use to cut/stain it?

Thanks guys, yes the Kehoe dovetail keys are really easy to work out, it probably took me a half hour to get going with the jig, highly recommended. The celtic cross engraving was done on a shopbot cnc. The wood: Melina (Gmelina arborea) works beautifully when engraved, any finish (in this case wipe on poly) absorbed along the engraved path darkens it quite a lot.

Do you have a photo of the inside. Is the access from the top or the bottom?
