« Part 1: Almost finished!! (pics) Part 2 of Mom's Jewelry Box series no next part

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.

I’m seeing that templates can be a real life saver.
