My daughter wanted a new jewelry box. She said she wanted a special design on the top and that she would provide me with the design.
She drew it up and i realized that this would give me my first tatse of doing inlay.
I researched inlay and found that Steve Latta had an excellent DVD on the subject.
He also has a line of tools that are just the ticket.
Figured cherry with bloodwood base.
Lid is made with bridle joints.
Inlays are holly and satinwood with purpleheart, holly and bloodwood. There is also an ebony berry in the middle.
Not my favorite design but this is what she wanted and it gave me invaluable lessons on inlay.
Iv’e since found myself using Mr.Latta’s technique’s on many other projects.
A simple inlay can really spice up a bland looking board.
Finish is 4 coats tung oil.
