This domed top Jewellery box is Birch ply based veneered with Huon Pine and Huon Pine Burl from Tasmania Australia, the trim timber is African Ebony.
The decorative inlay heart vines are coloured epoxy thanks to my new Xcarve and the Hearts are inlayed Awabi shell (Mother of Pearl).
The lining is Pigskin Suede.
The box was made for a 21st Birthday gift.

Nicely done. Very clean and sharp lines and pig suede makes such a nice interior.

Wow….a lot of detail I like everything you have done here; mother of pearl, epoxy, ebony banding, coopered lid. Awesome project.

Thanks for sharing.

What was your process for the epoxy inlay? Perhaps you should make a blog about it!
