I make a lot of small cedar boxes with images or lettering inlaid into the hinged lid. This box was ordered by a regular customer and after it was delivered she bought two more, just the same. When she placed the order, I made a total of five thinking they might sell well, and I was right. I sold one to a friend also. I only have one left now. This is the main reason I do special orders. It gives me an idea of what will sell well. This is an eastern red cedar (aromatic) box measuring 8”x6”x2” deep. The inlaid woods are Maple , Bois’darc and poplar (leaves). I use a scroll saw to do the inlay using the “double bevel inlay” method.
