Well I think that that's about it! Took longer than anticipated, but I reckon that it's turned out pretty good. The gear action to open the photo compartment is free and easy, and the fret work has survived all my sanding, shaping, buffing and polishing that I've thrown at it, so all in all I'm pretty chuffed with the result. I'll get it packed up and sent off to its new owner in the States over the next day or so, and fingers crossed that they think the same!
Right, back to the orrery project.

That is beautiful. you just went from woodworker to artist. I personally would pay for the pattern and instructions to make it. Someone had best be very happy to receive that eagle

That turned out great. I like the way you did the photo pocket by adding the gears.
