Purple Heart & Maple Box…with inlays…12”x 7”x 5”, stop hinges, black felt liner, three coats of lacquer..The diamond inlay is the first inlay pattern I’ve made…After seeing how Patron makes his beautiful inlays, I think I will pick it up notch. Thanks for looking…

I’m a fan of the curly maple and have a bit left over from a project I’m finishing up, probably wait till i’m a little more skilled before trying something of THIS level of detail.

Seriously looks great, thanks for sharing.

Nice one Bob. Good work on the inlays, especially for a first time. I also like the way you stuck with the diamond theme even to the handle.

If I had one picky comment it might be that I think it may have looked a bit better if the inner diamond on the handle stayed parallel with the outer one…...... but that’s just being picky.

Beautiful box.

Thanks for all the nice comments…shipwright…I was going to make the diamonds parallel…but I thought if they weren’t it would make people look twice to see if what they were looking at was really there…LOL

I think you did a good job. I liked the explanation behind the placement of the diamonds. You are either a person who plans ahead or a quick thinker! Great color combinations and just the right amount of each.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
