I realized I probably should have included what tools/techniques I used for this since I imagine people find that kind of stuff interesting, so here we go!
All of the woodworking was done with basic Ryobi shop tools (table saw, band saw (made by Wen, the only tool not from Ryobi), belt sander, drill press and a miter saw). I drew the inlay using a digital tablet and converted it to vector graphics so I could use an old Anet A8 3D printer I had converted into a laser etcher/cutter to cut the inlay pieces from veneer I had laying around, I also used it to burn an inset region to glue the inlay into the bubinga. I used powdered silver and stone, with CA glue to inlay the line work. Finally the box was finished with a coat of Tung Oil to bring out the woods natural character. Most of these advanced inlay techniques I learned from watching videos Wrymwood posted on Youtube showing their process and the basics I learned from my dad when I was growing up as well as watching tutorials from YouTubers such as Steve Ramsey and Jay Bates, look them up, they're great resources!.
