Also made another marquetry box this week. This time with roses, a bit more difficult than orchids.

Looks good from over here, but what about that latch … looks like a push button … how cool.
What kind of finish did you choose?

I used tung oil and shellac. The latch can be bought at leevalley. Must confess this was the first time that it wasn’t a pain in de @$$ to install. Shows that you learn more from your mistakes!
