Finally finished with this Art Deco style Music Box. It has a 72 note musical movement the two woods are Ebony and Holly veneers and hardwoods. I designed this box to fit into the Art Deco time period between 1919 to 1939. Thank you very much for looking.

Wonderful.  Gives us amateurs something to aspire to.

This is pretty special Dennis. The techniques of making the interlaid parts is difficult enough but the precision to make them balance and match perfectly is really impressive. I think if I was shown this box elsewhere I could guess who built it. There’s a lot of “Dennis” in it.
You are an artist, no question about it.

Another museum quality piece of artwork. The legs are spectacular 
just WOW 😍😎👍

A beautiful piece of craftsmanship Dennis. From the sexy legs to the beautiful pattern on the side and everything in between. A master of the craft.

Really awesome. I love the details and attention put into this. As a side note, your box book was one of my inspirations to start woodworking (the complexity and marquetry captured my attention).
