End view showing knotwork design from the book of Kells I think . I built the sewing box and then carved it using traditional carving tools .This design is one royal pain in the butt . You can find similar designs that don't have the weak joint/hinge point at the top . The design is based on a medieval reliquary . But it turned out there are sewing boxes that look much like it .
That is so beautiful
Why thank you very much , I'm glad you like it .
How long did that take?
I think I remember it taking about a month to a month and a half , I built the sewing box as well as carving it .
