I made this as a shop box to keep my “butterfly” keys in. The box is cedar and the butterfly is black walnut. This is the 3rd butterfly inlay that I’ve done and the best so far. Practice, practice, practice!
The box measure’s 12’’ L x 4’’ W x 3 1/2’’ H. It took me 1 hour to chisel the butterfly out and about another 1/2 hour to fit the key in just right.
It has 3 applications of Danish oil and then waxed with Howard’s Feed-n-Wax.
I may put some “stops” on the underside of the lid to keep it from sliding around, but all-in-all, it’s done!
Thanks for looking
