Maple keepsake box with ALOT of epoxy inlay. This was a fun project for me. It was a colaborative effort with my niece coming up with the design and me buiding it. It is for her sisters (my niece) wedding. A few coats of clear shellac is the finish.

That’s a really nice gift. Another example that with the epoxy, the sky is the limit. Great job.

Thanks Joey! had a few air bubble issues. Not completely resolved. My next attempt I plan on trying the acetone spray technique. I learned that the heat technique can discolor (but it does bring the bubbles to the top) This was a lot of epoxy. Fun project.

You hit the nail on the head when you talked about the things and techniques we discover in every project! That is one of the top reasons why I love working and making things with wood. My neighbor who loves tinkering with cars asked me to get involved with him on working on cars. I almost chased him out of my shop! I MAKe something beautiful (at least I think so), unusual – even one-of-a-kind, can be passed down to others, and I don’t get grease under my finger nails! Working on cars is just fixing others’ problems! :) :0 :) Oh, good job!

3GWoodguy – can you tell me what you used for the blue coloring? I’m going to be doing an epoxy inlay project, and I need some Dodger blue. This would be just about right.

......i think it was a mother of pearl acrylic blue paint…..doesnt take much paint to color the epoxy. Like 5-1 epoxy to paint
