Really nice! Is the top veneer?

If so, what kind of glue did you use?

Also, how did you glue it down?

This piece is very pretty. In the large pic it looks like 3 splines on the left and one on the right… is that the case or just hard to see?

Another very nice box, the wood used on the main box lid and the interior box are really beautiful…excellent build.

Excellent job. I like the curved sides and inner box. The burled lid is really nice.

No veneer was harmed in the making of this item. Solid wood – the spalted stuff was a treat! There are some splines that came out darker. Thanks looking!

I real like the spaulted and walnut wood combination. The wenge handle sure pops off the lid I’d say. Very cool looking box!
