So, my wifes says, “Let’s make our anniversay presents this year.” Well, 15 hours and $150 dollars in new tools later I have completed my very first woodworking project. At the same time I have found a new love, woodworking, and if my wife complains about my time in the shop I can say it’s her fault for having me make her present.
This box is made out of red oak and the inlay around the edge is poplar. The flower is a polymer clay inlay. I had to cheat a little on the flower. I must have watched that inlay video by the wood whisperer 10 times and I thought, that can’t be that hard I can do that. WRONG! All in all I’m quite proud of my first project and I look forward to many more.
