I built this box for my brothers 30th birthday. The box is walnut and the bottom it dogwood. I don’t know what the inlay is. It is from a burl that I got off a dead tree. I thought it looked cool so I decided to use it. The dogwood came from some dead trees in my yard. I’m pretty happy about the results. His initials came out better than I had expected.
Thanks for looking

great work, from this angle it looks as though the top wasn’t finished like as if you just routed a recess for an inlay but didn’t put it in yet. Very nice piece.

Ditto , any close-ups of the inlay ? : )
