Top is spalted hickory with turquoise inlay, sides are figured walnut. First go at inlay in 20 some years, alll in all it went pretty well.

The last pic is of the kerf hinge from woodcraft. Anyone ever use these? If so, got any tips to clean up the process a bit?

Very nice inlay! I really like the use of the spalting as clouds.

Nice box. I’m not sure I understand the question, though. Could you expand on it?

Maybe upload a picture with the lid open so we can see how you did the hinges from the inside.

I have always found that a sharp knife and coming at the hinge prep from the side with your chisel rather gouging from the face helps. Beautiful box my friend
