This is a nice little box that I made from some end cuts I had left over form a few other projects. It was built as a utility box so I did not include any bells and whistles. Though I did line the inside with self adhisive felt paper.

The box is constructed from Cypress, Juniper, with Bloodwood inlays.

Very nice box. there is always a good use for cutoffs and scraps. How tall is it?

Nice! I like how you ‘framed’ the cypress with the bloodwood. How did you cut the slot around the cypress for the bloodwood inlay?

gfadvm,
The inlay was cut in with a dremel (since it was soft wood) with a mini router attachment and guide. I set the depth for 1/8th inch and cut the channels out. I used a chisel to square the corners and inserted the 1/8th inch strips I had on hand. I mitered the corners to flow with the box corners. Glued and clamped them in, and after an hour used a plate scraper to remove the access. (being careful not to gouge the much softer juniper and cypress.

I like it. Nothing fancy, but good solid workmanship. You let the wood grain do all the talking.

Have your say...
