You built a nice box. The figure on the walnut and maple panels add visual interest to the piece. And your inlays draw attention to the box.

Nice build.

Thanks for the post.

That box is outstanding! Very well executed and interesting but not gaudy design… Excellent! My one criticism which is actually more a statement of preference would be the finish. The gloss is a bit too pronounced for my liking, but that is merely opinion, your remarkable craftsmanship cannot be ignored!
