My first attempt at a box with inlay. Walnut with hard maple strings and splines. Finished with general finishes satin poly, wet sanded, 0000wool and polish.

Sides made of walnut, top walnut edges, plywood center and veneered. The burl is store bought the rest is made in shop. Built for my father in law with his favorite quote routed in the top with my carvewright. Was quite a learning experience having never built this style of a mitered box, done veneer, inlay, strings, or CNC work before. Almost as addictive at cutting boards!

thanks for looking.
