African mahogany document box

Here is an African mahogany hand cut dovetailed document box.  Diamond banding on the lid with shell marquetry.  Holly banding on the front with another shell marquetry.  All brass hardware is from Horton Brasses.  Did a French polish with amber shellac.  Used a homemade beeswax polish as well. 
That is a beautiful box.  There are lots of nice touches to it.

Rolling the dice and hit this.
