I wanted to try some inlay and probably picked something a little hard but it turned out ok for my first attempt. And my daughter liked it. I used some poplar, because depot had It on sale. Lol and I inlayed with pine and oak, cause it was scrap and didn’t want to use good stuff on something not sure how to do. I then put linseed oil on it and then my daughters name for a cute little keepsake box. Sorry pics are turned, will fix it when I can get in a PC, not sure why phone turns them when added.

Paula, think that it looks very nice – especially since it’s your first time doing Inlay. Keep up the good work.

nice looking box! Did you use a router to do the inlay or a scroll saw (double bevel inlay)?
