This was a wine box that I made for Christmas last year, just finally getting around to posting the project now.

This was my first venture into marquetry, and it was pretty basic. I used the scroll saw packet cutting method. It’s a mix of Oak, Cherry, Mahogany, Some White Burl I’ve forgotten the name of, and Quilted Sapele. Inside image is the same, just using other pieces from the packet. The back panel is Goncalo Alves veneer. The rest of the box is made from some Birdseye Maple. Finished with shellac and paste wax.

I do a LOT of inlay with my scroll saw and yours is great! I have not done any wine boxes but many others (2000+) I may just try doing what you did. Thank you for this post.

Beautiful! My New Years resolution is to try inlay and marquetry with the scroll saw. I bet my first and several on going attempts are not as good as that.
