I have planned to trim back the walnut veneer back by 6mm(1/4”) and glue in a strip of zebrano on the corners.
I made a cutting guide using 18mm dowel, a hobby knife blade and a round piece of nylon which I had to turn on a metal working lathe to the shown shape as a stock, with a flat stock I would not get a parallel cut on the concave curves.
So I set to after a couple of trial runs and away I went!
After I cut through the veneer I heated the veneer with a clothing iron to reactivate the hide glue and removed the strip of veneer.
Then I set about cutting in the zebrano veneer. I am trying to keep the grain of the zebrano square to the cuvre of the box. (trying)
This is the design on the ends of the box.
