Another wood box with marquetry. The banding is made by sandwiching wood strips together. You then crosscut the strip, glue the small sections together and then cut the banding as needed.The design on the lid comes from a site called 123rf. It is a royalty free photo and vector image web site. I find it is a good place to browse for ideas and designs. Thank you for looking.

Here is the site that instructs how to do the inlay. I know that my description is not to good, so this should clarify it. The inlay banding may seem like allot of work but really it isn’t and you also end up with a handful of it for future projects.

Another nice box John.
I agree that making banding is a bit tedious but as you say you end up with lots and it is very rewarding to see the fruits of your labor on a finished product.
Yours is handsome and its alignment looks perfect.
Nice marquetry as well.

Another home run! You do beatiful work, and everything is individualistic. The marquetry and banding are outstanding.

Very, very nice John. Love the box design. Might like to try that with the 4 post structure. And I’m really liking the marquetry design. I had to look at it for awhile to pick up on the subtle hint of a womans face. Thanks for the links.

That marquetry and banding make this one very special. Probably too tedious for me but I really admire your skill. (maybe I’ll just buy some banding). That wouldn’t count though :(
