There were a few bits and pieces left over after I milled the one third of the slab of White Cedar that Col gave me for milling his two thirds..
That is after I bookmatched the resawn piece…
I set up the Incra Mitre Express and using a Magswitch as a stop cross cut some 12 mm [1/2 inch] pieces of endgrain…these were 200 mm [8 in] by 50 mm [2 in] .... and then book matched them
I did one glue up with 8 pieces… destined for a serving tray..
This pic is taken showing the other 6 part glueup… to be made into a box
The sides are also made of White Cedar with the inlay set in a rebate at the top and the ply base in a groove routered in the side….
The box was made with mitres and I have added brass filigree to the corners.
A few coats of Danish oil and brass hinges… or might I make some timber hinges… I am of two minds… maybe work that out later… and also a felt lining… forrest green seems appropriate…It will only be very shallow but enough to showcase a very smart piece of jewellery.
