Saw a blog once on “string” boxes awhile back. Couldn’t ever find it again! Being a self-taught amatuer I figured what the heck. So I made my own “string” box.
Built maple box. Used a veining bit in the trim router, went a little crazy with it. Inlaid. Sealed.
Nothing special but it’s OK. Something to build. Crazy, huh?

Looks special to me. Great creativity and re-inventing the wheel is just as much fun as inventing it. What are the inlays?
Thanks for sharing this with us.

‘Nothing special’? I disagree. Its inventive, you enjoyed doing it, I’m enjoying looking at it. any of those make it special in my book.

Well done, thanks for posting, made my day that bit more bearable.

Nicely done Hawk. I like the airiness of it. The inlay makes the box look light as a feather. Great job and thanks for sharing it with us.

Nothing special HUH! I beg to differ, this is special! Don’t be putting yourself down cause you don’t think it is special. How many times have you seen stuff like this? Not very often! I really like this and would be glad to have this in my house on display in a prominent place.
