I used one of Steve Good’s patterns to make these trays in red cedar. On one of the trays I carved a butterfly on the end – not very successfully. Red cedar is not good for carving! I cut out a butterfly on the scroll saw using mahogany and overlaid it on the second box. Two more projects completed to add to the Christmas list!

Nicely done. Really like the ones with the overlay; it sets it off well.

Nice job, and I agree on liking the overlay better because of the contrast.

I like everything about it. The carved and/or the overlay butterfly, both very nicely done. Lotsa nice scrollin goin on there. The receiver will be exstatic, I’m sure
