Nice work Jim,
That jewelry box is a looker!
I like the end grain chickadee - if you don't mind I have a couple of practical Q's on that:
- with the background being end grain did you do anything to deal with wood movement in the inlaid pieces? It seems like it should be fine on a smaller piece like this but I've been eyeballing a much larger piece for a while and that's been one of my fears/hangups so figured I'd ask in the general sense
- How did you glue it with all of the end<->side grain contact? Just a seal coat and then glue seems sufficient but thought I'd ask if you have any tricks while we're here.
that's some great looking work jim.

Nice work, Jim. I hope you get some blue ribbons!
Nice work Jim really like the jewelry box, nice work in the drawer fronts
Nothing to add to what has been said Jim, I love the box and I can see the merit of the intarsia work. Please dont get me wrong, it is only that I'm not a fan of intarsia although I can tell the good from bad apart, and that is GOOD!
