Nice job! You need to find a friend with a better camera though so we can see the details.

Awesome piece. Your friend will probably put up with you a while longer I would say.Maybe it’s not the camera I know I have to use a tripod for shots like this even a cheap one works well.

As some one who likes to do marquety inlays. I will say that that is one fine job. Hope I will be to that level someday. Are the woods dyed? If not where do you get such a green wood? Do you use a knife or a scrollsaw to cut out the inlay and how thick is the inlay? I have tried to do the burning with very little success, can’t seem to get the sand hot enough. Maybe my hot plate is not big enough, or I have to much sand.

Great job. Does the camera have a macro function? Usually it’s depicted as a flower symbol. It works surprisingly well.

Great looking box and inlay!
Try not putting the camera quite so close. Then, if you have any editing software at all, you can crop the image to enlarge the area you want to show up close.

Very nice. I’m another marquetry type who would like to see some sharper photos if you can swing it. I’m also interested in the questions mainwoodworks asked above.

I really like the sculpted lid. That’s a beatiful piece of wood.
