Here is a trio of little boxes I’ve been working on more or less concurrently for the last couple of weeks. The first is a direct result of the new scrap bin I built… while filling it up I ran across piece of walnut with a really cool grain pattern. I resawed it on the table saw to 3/8 thickness and bookmatched the pieces that make up the top. The wood was a little punky and I couldn’t get a perfect seam, so I ran an inlay straight down the joint.
The second box is from a resawn cherry scrap. The large center inlay and the miter keys are fiberglass resin mixed with black crushed stone.
The last box is made from goncalo alves and walnut, with ash miter keys and inlay.
Thanks for looking. Comments and questions welcome.
