Three memory boxes made from walnut, cherry, birdseye maple mahogany and one with a some purple heart accent. Two with sand shaded leaves the other one with inlayed stones. All three finished with oil and wax.

Very nice boxes, you should be proud of these. I have wanted to inlay some turquoise into a box lid, as you did the stones but haven’t been able to find thin slices yet. I particularly like the second one with the curly (looks like maple but you didn’t mention curly maple in your list of woods). Love the way you bookmatched the two pieces for the top!

Keep up the good work!

Great work! Love the inlay. I haven’t tried any sand shading but after seeing your work will have to give it a try.
