This is my latest box. The exterior sides are Black Walnut, sculptured with my Dremel tool, the interior walls are Burly Maple, and the top lid is Birch with the 4-leaf clover being a Mahogany veneer inlay. The interior bottom is lined with black felt. This is my first attempt at doing inlay, and the 4-leaf clover is still very slightly proud of the surface, but I could not get it in any further.. I guess I should have routed the recess a slight bit deeper, but I had no choice to leave it as is because it was such a tight fit that I cannot take it back out without breaking it. Live and learn. It still looks OK the way it is, at least in my mind.
