This is a box my boss commissioned for his daughter who just graduated high school and is goint to the University of Arkansas. It is walnut and oak. The lid is done as a double bevel inlay. The box is cut from a solid block of aok so it has what other people refer to as “no joints”. I call them perfect joints. :-)

Very nicely done Cozmo.
Good job on the inlay, just like really thick marquetry.

Cosmo, you did a fine job on this box. I’m sure that both your boss and his daughter were thrilled with it.

Nice work on that inlay Cozmo!

Damn good joinery on the box as well – I can’t see a single seam on the corners! ;-)

That’s a sweet inlay job! Very nice!
I think you should have splined the box corners, though.

Very nice! The razorback inlay is perfect

I have no idea how you cut all of that fine detail.

That inlay is flawless. I’m very new to woodworking and I’d love to know how to do an inlay of that quality. I’m currently planning a box for my girlfriends hair cutting tools and I’d love to inlay it with her name, but I have no idea where to start. I just know i want the inlay to be an elegant font and not a simple blocky PoS. Can anyone help?
