I make and sell many cedar boxes with images or lettering inlaid into the hinged lids. This is my latest effort. The stripes are strips of cedar and soft maple with walnut for the background for the stars. I made the stars by using a leather tooling tool with a hammer to indent the walnut with the star shape. About 1/8” deep. I then filled the voids with white polymer clay that needs to be baked in the oven to harden. This box measures nine inches by six inches by two inches deep. I use a clear finish, no stains or paints.
