That is extremely pretty. I love the detail of putting the stringing on the inside of the door too.

Been on my bucket list for years, well done!

It looks very crisp and clean, the inlay work is perfection.

Very nice and well proportioned. I hand cut dovetails on a chest on chest and appreciate the work involved.
