no previous part Part 1 of Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays series Part 2: First Cuts for RoseBud »

I am in the process of building five different jewelry boxes as showcase pieces for a business I am trying to launch. All of the boxes are mirror images of each other except I used different types of wood on each one. This picture shows how the boxes looked a few days ago. Notice the one in the back with the TurtleSoup inlay???

Each box is getting its own decorative inlay built on it because that is what sells, kits that will allow the average (and trust me on this my skills are very average!!!) woodworker the ability to add a decorative inlay to any of their projects.

Anyway… this picture is a close up of the FishFry inlay I built on the lid of the Goncalo Alves and Walnut box. If you look closely you can see a few of the gaps that were filled in with glue and sawdust but still it looks pretty good. IMHO of course. If you want to read up on the nitty gritty details of how I built FishFry check out my blog at That goes into all sorts of detail about the selection of woods, the positioning of the inlay on the lid, how to cut out the inlay pieces, etc…

The Bubinga and Purple Heart box will be getting a yellow and white inlay I call RoseBud. The Oak and Purple Heart box will get an inlay called FlutterBy. This is a picture of FlutterBy from a different project. I’m not sure yet but I think the Oak and Bloodwood box will get a KickinIt inlay. We will see though…
