« Part 3: the next box Part 4 of more boxes series Part 5: I have been experimenting with Martyn's EZMitre technizue »

Here is another box I just complete. More experimentation with wood inlays and the sort.

I thought I’d also share what I use to plan out my woodworking. While I have used Sketchup for rough outs and such, for 15+ years I have used a program called Lightwave 3D for technical modeling/animation. While Lightwave is a little more detailed in a different direction than Sketchup, it does an awesome job of rendering.

Here is the same box as I planned it out, rendered in Lightwave.

thanks for the comments. The box is made with padauk and black walnut burl with an inlay stripe of cherry.
