I made this memory box for my girlfriend’s birthday as she’s obsessed with keeping things from days out, etc. I made it so it can stand up right in her book case. The door/lid is held shut by a 6mm earth magnet, the box is made from chestnut i had laying around from an antique dresser that fell apart and the inlays are Iroko purpleheart and maple. The inside of the lid had a large defect in it but luckily the heart was just big enough to cover it.
So this is my first attempt at an inlay, i bought a jig to help me get used to the idea of how inlays work. Its always something ive been amazed by, i think next time I’ll be more creative and go for a free hand design.
