I built this bible box as a gift, its constructed out of cherry with Puruvian black walnut inlay cross with splines made of paduk. Brusso hinges. The bottom of the box is lined with goat skin leather. I had some issues with one spline and a slight gap as well as a small swirl in the first layer of finish I missed. I apologize for the lighting on the photos…its not the best.

This is a beautiful box. It’s a fine home for a treasured Bible.

Thanks folks! The Cross was created by using a 3/8 mortising bit in my drill press, then I ripped the Peruvian Walnut on the saw to just a bit strong of 3/8 and sanded it to fit fitting the upright first and the sides second. Once, glued in cut the inlay flush. The finish is a quick 15 rubbed on and sanded to 1000 grit between three coats. I don’t usually use it but I was really pressed for turned out very smooth.
