I think you should change the comment from ‘attempts’ to ‘successes’ !

Attempts? Heck, I guess the Mona Lisa was an attempt at a painting.

I have to agree Charlie M. The inlay is beautiful.

Thank everyone for the comments.
The jewelry box is cherry front and sides a maple top with a cherry inlay. I finished it with a tung oil hoping the cherry will age nicely.. Currently the smaller boxes are unfinished.

Bevels on the lid are done on the table saw. Used a Jig there was plas for in one of the Shop Notes magazines, for cutting tenons.
