Nicely executed pattern. The bevel is good too.

Nicely done! Very well designed details and great craftsmanship. The pattern works really well. I like this box a lot.

Very nice.
I too like the bevel on top and the execution on the checker board is excellent.

I, for one, hope you do. You are obviously a talented box maker. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Hope your recovery went well.

It is a stunning, eye-catching box!
