My most recent cedar box. Magnolia blossom inlaid into cedar. Hard maple, poplar (leaves) and bois d’arc.
Box measures 8” x 6” x 3” deep. I use the “double bevel inlay” method done using my scroll saw.

When folks tell me I have talent I say “no I just have perseverance” I have thrown a few away over the years.
