I can see that you are having a lot of fun making these objects!

Very talented idea using the splines for legs too. Very nice piece. Interesting jig you are using for the splines. Is that your own design?

Not completely … it is based on one by John Lucas. He did a demo for the Gwinnett Woodworkers a few years back … here is a link to that video.

Just wanted to add that your box is even more refined and beautiful than the one by Cindy Pei-si Young.
The little flourishes that you’ve added are gorgeous and really make the design sing.

Nice effort with combination of turning and “regular” construction!

What impresses me is how that can scale. It could be 3” or 3 feet and still fit in perfectly most anywhere.
