Box made of spalted maple and peruvian walnut. Inlayed with Turquoise stone. First time I tried inlay in a bad area of wood. Seemed to work pretty good.

Well done job. I have yet to master any turquoise inlay yet. Yours looks great.

Your inlays look pretty nice. I have been thinking about trying some inlays with crushed stone or metal filings. It looks like you did the inlay before you separated the top from the bottom of the box. Is that how you did it?

RichCMD – Yes, I turned the outside to a rough shape to find the voids. Then I filled them with a product called Inlace and finished the turning process.
