I’ve seen this bent laminated inlay done by several folks. I thought it would look nice on a jewelry box/valet. I used soft maple for the main wood. The inlay is cherry and maple and the top insert is tiger maple.
I started with 8/4 maple. I did two of the bent laminations. I tried to keep in mind the way they approached the ends of the board. If they end with an angle that’s too steep, it will leave a pointed shape rather than a flowing one. I resawed and planed the inlaid board to about 1/2”. Then cut a side and a front (or back) out of each piece, but reversing the order. By cutting the miters so the the inside surface of the board becomes the outside of the box, the grain, as well as the inlay flows around all four corners of the box. Thanks for looking.
