Not all of my work is turning. I made this small box a couple of years ago. It is bloodwood with a curly maple top. The maple is edged with a Beek colored Inlace inlay. The box is about 9 1/2×3 x 3. It is finished with severial coats of Danish Oil. the inside is done with DonJer Suede-Tex flocking. There is no fancy joints, just simple rabbit on the corners.

I really like the look of the maple and bloodwood together. And the maple had some of the nicest curly that I have seen.

Inlace is sort of like epoxy but only requires a few drops of the catalyst. It comes in clear that you can add dyes or other material to (stone dust, glitter, Inlace stones or dust, etc). Also red and black and then colors that they have mixed with a “fine sand” size material in different colors. I used the Inlace “nuggets” and “dust” and a copper color dye for this. It drys in about 4-6 hours and kind of looks like stone.

The inlace sets it off but the curly maple really makes this project complete.

Now thats a cheeseburger in paradise…..not too particular…not too precise…. Sorry…..the parrothead makes me do it….

I can probably quote just about any of his songs…it comes from hearing them for long watches during many a long day or nights watch sailboat racing – I’ve sailed boats since I was 4 years old or so…..a bit on my uncles Sparkman & Stevens then later on ultra lights and then my own Newport….I’ve done the Transpac, Manzanillo, Tahiti, MORA, been through the Panama Canal…etc…etc….My uncle was the definitive Jimmy Buffett afficianado…so no ride was without his music blaring from the cabin speakers…anyway I digress…

Now that box is a very nice combination….and that maple is devine…beautiful job.
