As Christmas gifts and to practice some various inlay patterns, I created three small boxes that were large enough to hold a deck of cards. Each box is constructed primarily out of black walnut and maple with box joints for the sides. Simply to clarify, the 1st box is a custom Pices symbol as a playing card, the second is a cross, and the last is a grim reaper. The letter A’s on the playing card were burned on while all other items are inlays. Other various woods used include gaboon ebony, macassar ebony, spalted pecan, and myrtle.
All three were finished with several coats of Deft lacquer. I learned a valuble lesson that lacquer must properly cure before attempting to rub it out and if the temperature is winter cold, the time is extended. Make sure to plan ahead :)
