Just finished this box. Due to the slender shape not everything is fitting like I hoped. But still quite content whit the result as a novice marquetry hobbyist.

used veneers are: makasser ebony, padauk, purpleheart, sycamore, walnut burl. The grey (dyed??) and yellow did come in a surprise veneer pack so I do not know the species.

Good one Bram.
You’ve come a long way in 101 days, although your first two were already very good.
Not just good marquetry but good art too.

Chevalet, knife, scroll saw, or fret saw?

Either way, it looks great.

Great work. I just took a class on this from a local her in Southern California. I can apperciate how hard this is after trying it.

Beautiful box and really nice marquetry work. The wood colors and contrast are very striking.
