These are the inlays I built on three jewelry box lids. The inlay kits were provided by EZInlays.com. The power tools I used to make the inlays included a plunge router, RO sander, and a Dremel. I also used a fair amount of double sided duct tape for the builds. Nothing better for preparing your inlay materials and then securing your template to the inlay material than double sided duct tape.
And that is the secret to making a good inlay. Nothing (and I do mean nothing) except for the router, is allowed to move during the cutting process.
I am working on a slew of “Tips and Tricks for Building Stunning Inlays” blog posts so please stay tuned for them… if you want to build an inlay that is… ;)
As for these particular inlays, they are on identical jewelry boxes that I am making. I am building a total of 5 boxes so I had to build ten different inlays. I chose to show the tops and bottoms of lids that go onto three of the five boxes.
The first two inlays (FishFry and KickinIt) are the top and bottom sides of a Walnut and Goncalo Alves box lid.
The third and fourth inlays, RoseBud and FlutterBy, are the top and bottom sides of a Bloodwood and Oak box lid.
The fifth and sixth inlays, DevilEyezed and TurtleSoup, are the top and bottom sides of a Walnut and Oak box lid.
