Chip carved jewelry box, custom order

A very detailed chip carving done on a basswood box, it was quite hard to carve around the bottom as I could not angled the knife properly. If I ever carve another box of this style I will make sure to create a design that would be more carving friendly around the tricky parts.

The box is almost 8x8 inches with 2.5 inches in height (not adding the ball feet and the top ball handle). It is finished with Danish oil and light brown gel stain.
