Beautiful work!
That is a gorgeous box. How thick is that cherry veneer? Is it two plys glued back to back?

Thanks for the comment. The veneer is one layer, it is 1/32” thick. I have a good stack of veneers a friend gave me. Not sure what they all are, but I have lined several boxes with different pieces.

This kind of work has always amazed me, and you’ve managed to keep that going.

I love that you took it a step farther and made it functional too.

If you did the five dragon box this is no more difficult. You know Pedro was real sick a while, in the hospital 2 months. Seems to be better now. Just for insurance, I now have 15 of his patterns. Enough to keep me busy for a few year!!!
