My first attempt at doing some crushed turquoise inlay. I’m pleased with the results.
Box is Black Walnut with Ebony trim.
Box is 13” x 8” x 4 1/4”.
Thanks for looking.

The box is awesome. Those inner compartment look great. I like this combination of walnut and dark red fabric.

This is a very hansom box and has a lot of character. Congratulations.

You hit this one out of the ballpark; very nice! The walnut looks sweet, and the chamfers on the top and bottom of the box are cool; really like this one!

That came out really great, I love turquoise in walnut. How did you make that top panel? Is it walnut veneer on a walnut substrate, or veneers on both sides with a solid banding? It was obviously thick enough for the inlay, so I’m baffled. Did you use CA glue or epoxy for the turquoise?

Awesome box!
May I ask please about hinges?
1.What is location of the pins (distance from back and top)?
2.Is the rabbet on the back deeper from sides and face?
And generally speaking, is there some formula or rule about this type of hinges
in order open the lid and stay it opened just a little more then upright?
Thank you!
