Stunning piece. Both the walnut top and the inner containers look great.
I really like the work done on the finger opening for the lid – great work!!!

Just beautiful. They say nothing is absolutely perfect, that piece must be as close as you can get.

Very well done. I think I can see some influence from your furniture restoration work in this box. I will have to find a copy of his book. And I am loving the wood!
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
