awesome looking burl used, and nice application, i’ve always struggled with veneer work trying to get it absolutely flush with adjacent panels, looks like you have mastered it.
thanks for posting

The box is a beauty. Well crafted. Well deserving of DT3.

Simple, clean lines, the subtle curves at the base are perfect. Wonderful contemporary design and use of contrasts. Well done!

Viktor,

That is a special box you made! Question are the corners just glued at the slanted 45%? Do you think that is strong enough? (no splines) That is not criticism just want to know.

Well done on the DT3

Petey,
There are two small floating tenons in each corner. I wouldn’t trust just the glue for a joint like this.
