I made this little fish box about a year ago. The bit of marquetry is a vector image photo from 123rf web site. The banding was done on the bandsaw and the finish is simply rubed on 50/50 poly and varsol. The part I found most challenging was the fishing line.

Very nice John.
That double bevel style certainly gets it done in the close-ups.
Nice veneer choices and perfection in cuts.
Well done too on the fishing line and all the tougher doing it in oak veneer.

Outstanding John. Now that’s something to be proud of. I’d like to see something like that hanging on my wall.

The detail in this one is amazing. The banding and perfect joinery is as impressive as the marquetry. (and that’s saying a lot!)
