More Art Fair Pics. I still have these boxes because this fair was like trying to sell caviar to a tuna fish crowd.
Anyway, my first try at onlay – store bought eagle onlay with some bwb trim on Curly Maple top. Box is Walnut with Curly Maple legs. Bottom is lined with brown deerskin. Box is 10×4x5.
Learned a neat trick from a woodworker on Youtube. On the back of the onlay, spread a layer of wood glue and let it dry overnight. Next day, iron it on like glue backed edge banding – easy and works perfectly! I have used the same trick on larger pieces of veneer and it worked fine too.
