We are our own worst critics, there really is nothing wrong cosmetically with this box. Yes it has a couple small cracks in the wood. What wood doesn’t crack. It is a beautiful box. Don’t be so critical of yourself. Hey, you made a mistake, so what. It still looks gorgeous. I love it cracks and all. Very cool, looks like real wood, not mdf covered with veneer. That’s how we learn, from our mistakes, right? Nice inlay by the way.

I have to agree with Mike we do learn from our mistakes. And it is a beautiful box.

Looks great! I agree about the crack, it adds interest! Did you make the banding yourself? Impressive! Great Job!

Nice looking project. I immediately saw the crack in the photo and saw it as a plus. What may seem like a giant goof, actually made this box a standout. Excellent work.

Thanks for the nice words everyone, after all maybe cracking a veneer is the way to go ;)
@ Tim, I don’t have my tools here in my flat (they’re at my parents’ place), I bought this fine banding at my veneer suppliers’. Though it’s a pretty straightforward banding with end grain purpleheart on the center (poorly butt-jointed BTW but I managed to hide that too).

Good work! I have to agree, the cracks actually add some visual interest to this piece. Nice work with the inlaid banding and I assume you made the banding which again was well done.

The result is great. I would not have reached for mdf myself, but you demonstrate that you can in fact get great results.

Nice box. The “mistake” is the best part!!! I love the cracks, looks natural. Nice work.
One question….you make guitars and yet no pix!!!! I’ve always wanted to make a guitar. Trying to learn how to play is hard enough :-)
Keep up the good work and let’s see pix of your guitars.
