WOW! That is way too nice to have been posted 2 hours and no comments! You did a great job on this one. That inlay looks pretty involved! I probably would not have used the screws on the hinges (glue and/or dowels) but that’s just me. Is that hinge done on the Incra thingy?

As a fan of both wooden hinges and marquetry / parquetry, I just have to comment on this lovely little box.
The hinges look great, the inlay is sharp and nicely shaded, and the overall clean simple lines are a treat.

Well done.

I like everything about this box. The clean design, the wood hinges and the interior construction.
