Tarot box for Alison

A commissioned chip carved keepsake basswood box, finished in dark mahogany.
The box is supposed to keep a deck of tarot cards but it can be obviously used for anything else.
The design is combination of my most favorite styles - free form foliage of oak leaves and acorns,
Gothic 'diamond' borders and Gothic lettering (though just one letter).
Dark mahogany gel stain finish is also something I enjoy a lot.

I am very happy with the finished piece, it is nicely intricate and pleasant to look at. 

Few more details of this piece:
