A friend wanted a napkin box to put on the table as a center piece. This was what I came up with. They were thrilled which always makes you feel good. The marquetry rose was done using the double bevel method on my shop made saw. The primary woods are cherry and walnut.

Nice one John.
Roses are such a good motif for marquetry.
Well done.

Great box and thanks for the help. Looks like I’ll be going hand powered, as this seems to be the prefered method.
