Fascinating design and joinery, Neil. I've never seen an end dovetailed along all four edges into a mitre like that.
I wonder if the lettering would have been more readable by mixing the epoxy with gold paint instead of sparkles (bit hard to read in the photos). That would also have matched the gold clasps.
Was the lettering done with some kind of template?
The internals with flocking looks really good, and the carving set looks superb.
A greeny on way.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them . . . well, I have others.
