When I began my Mom’s Box, I knew that I was in the end going to make three total boxes that are similar. It would have been easier to do them all at once, but I am trying to use different methods of getting to the same end to see what works best for me. I’m still very green in a lot of areas of WWing, but am trying to expand my comfort. Anyways, I knew that I was going to be doing the same “W” inlay on all the pieces. I should have done one of two things. I would have done best to make a template as “W” is the initial of my and the people I primarily make things for’s last name. I would definitely have used in many future projects. I had some pieces break as I cut the thin inlay. I could have solved that problem by cutting the inlay from thick stock and then resawing them into several thin pieces for all the boxes. Live and Learn.
