Another beautiful box Cancharanay! The inlay really is striking. What tool did you use to flatten the inlay to the box top surface? Thanks for sharing.

Very nice idea and well executed. How are the wood pieces inlayed? Got more pics showing details?

Fantastic looking box! The pretty wood colors really stand out with the maple. Like the cool mechanism. Great job as usual.
