I built this for a friend who wanted something to give to his brother as a birthday gift. I asked what he liked and was told he was a Fliers fan. I thought about several different ideas, and finally decided to give inlay work a try. I learned a lot of how to’s and what not to do’s. Over all it was a lot of fun and I plan to do some more inlay work in the future. The maple and padauk inlay is about 1/8 of an inch deep. Thanks for looking

Nice looking box and I like the logo inlay even so I am a flames fan.
Great job and your friends brother will like it as it is also one of a kind box.
Keep up the good work and keep posting it.

thanks

How unfortunate that a nice box like that is tarnished with that team’s logo. Shameful.

@ DIYaholic, Thank you for the compliment on my box and inlay. I understand that sports fans are competitive by nature and the competition between teams can over power good judgement. It took me a little while to realize that your first statement was directed at the team and not my work. Not being a sports fan, I sometimes forget that the etiquette of sports fan is different than what I find comfortable.

It you would like a box inlayed with your team of choice then send me a personal message. I would be more than happy to make one with any team that you would like.

Thanks again,
Joey

Joey,
Please accept my sincerest appologies for offending you.

It was not my intent to offend you in ANY way! That was the point of the Lol & JK (just Kidding).

After reading your comment and thinking on a response for a while, I realized that there was nothing nice about your comment. I don’t mind constructive criticism, I actually like it, as I think it helps me get better. What you did in my opinion was make a very Passive-Aggressive attack on my work. So when you said that my inlay looked like crap, even with a LOL and JK it is still offensive and hurtful. In this case the LOL and JK just made it “OK” to be passive aggressive.

I just think that it may be wise to make sure you know the person you send a comment like that to. What ever your meaning was you said something insulting about my work. Directly at my work!

I accept your apology, I just hope that we take a moment to reread our comments to see what they say. The only thing I see when I read your is my work is crap and your grandmother can do better. So no matter what else you said or meant, that is what I see.

Joey
