« Part 11: Installing the hinges but forgetting to pay attention Part 12 of String inlaid box series no next part

All the hardware has been installed, the finish is great and it is pretty much done.

There are still things to do for the inside, like make the little sliding tray, and get some stock and French fit the things that are going into the box… oh right… I have still not mentioned what is going into the box.

Well a picture will tell it better.

That’s right. My inlay tools will be going into this box. The large tools will be French fit in the bottom, and the sliding tray will be home to the small chisels and groove cutters. The tray will slide on the two Spanish cedar runners that I glued onto the inside of the front and back. I should be getting that done some time over the next week or so if I can find time… but probably not. Honestly.. I kind of have it in my mind that I need to make the sliding tray just as crazy as the box it goes into…

Anyways, thanks for following along. This build was so much fun, and I am beyond happy with the final result.

I can’t think of a much more fitting place for your inlay tools then an inlaid box !
Really nice job Jeremy.
