« Part 17: Back in the shop Part 18 of dust stuff series Part 19: Getting back to the shop »

I don’t have much time in the shop anymore so I thought I would do a few carved inlays for some box lids. Here’s one I started today.

Thanks. I’ve got a few other projects in the works also. I figure I can get the inlays ready and build the boxes when I have time.

Looks like it could be pretty time consuming!

It’s a Phoenix, which just happens to be our youngest son’s middle name. Since he doesn’t have a box yet, I thought it would be appropriate. I’ve done a phoenix box in the past, but nothing this challenging.

Very awesome.

I am sure the children take a lot of time.

Thanks. It’s getting there. It’s on a wild piece of curly maple. I have high hopes for it.

That carved inlay sure looks good. It’ll be interesting to see how it comes out.

Made a little more progress on the Phoenix. I added a bit of red ink to see if I would like it. I think once I get it sanded up and the lines filled in along with the edges it’s going to look pretty good. I’ve already thought of a few ways to improve it, but I want to follow this one to the end first. What do you guys think about the red ink?
