String inlay box for string inlay tools

This is a box that I made using my hand tools, and more specifically: string inlay tools. The box was made to house my inlay tools.

The wood is some sort of mahogany, which one I have no idea. The stringing and edging are maple. The fans are made from maple and dyed black veneer. The shell is made from birdseye maple veneer. The finish is blonde shellac.

I blogged during the process, so if you are interested in seeing more about how it is built, the tools and methods that I used.. please click here.

Thanks for looking

Wow, your inlay work is great. The sea shell on the lid indeed does appear 3-D to me. Great inside the box thinking for tool storage. Should be easier to find these tools now.

Bravo

Having done a LITTLE bit of veneer work, i can appreciate the work/time that went into this.

The whole box shows a high level of skill and detail, but the shell on top is just flat out amazing. I rarely use this term when looking at people’s work, but that, my friend is art.

Thanks for showing it,
JD
