This is a small keepsake box gift made of cherry and walnut. I added a few simple line and berry inlays made from purpleheart (berries) and maple (lines).

beautiful – those inlays are a really nice touch. did you cut the berries with a plug cutter? the walnut back looks really nice – love that figure!

very nice work, love the line and berry inlays. Did you do the line and berries with those lie nielsen tools or did you make your own?

I did cut the berries with a plug cutter and I used the lie neilsen inlay tools for the line work. The lei nielson inlay tools are excellent.

Very well done, I’m trying to make a Jewlery box for my wife as a surprise, but she keeps coming in asking what I’m making. She probaly knows something is up, after 18 yrs she knows when I’m lying! LOL Great job all the way around on this, its perfect.
