This was a fun little project that will lead to a lot more I hope. The box is mahogany, with maple keys, and a maple handle. The inlay is my first attempt at using a colored epoxy. I am very happy with the inlay and cannot wait to experiment with the technique some more. The bottom is cedar.

Thanks for looking

Looks good to me. The inlay looks cool too.

I’ve never used a colored epoxy. How hard was it to do?

Very nice box. Is there a web reference to find out more about the epoxy inlay technique?. The live edge maple handle is a great feature. thanks for sharing.

Very nice work all around! I’ve never used color epoxy either. Is there a good tutorial anywhere that you used, or maybe a book?

I did a little research online, but didn’t come up with much more than a idea. So I found some epoxy dyes from inlace and went to work. The biggest issue I had was with bubbles. I simply reapplied the epoxy and repeated the process. When I try a new process I tend to learn just enough to get me in trouble and then find a way to get out of it LOL

here is where I got my dye and just used my normal epoxy

Thanks for the kind comments
