Got a new Micro Fence for Christmas and had to try a bit of inlay on this jewelry box. I’ve made a few thousand boxes over the past 15 years, but never had it easier getting the exact width needed for a perfect fit for the inlay before. Wood is Sapele, and the finish is Matte, Buffcote lacquer.

Bob, this is splendid work. I like how the drawer is fitted between the splines, the neat interior work, the beautiful job on the inlay and the quadrant hinges. “Making thousands of boxes” even in 15 years is quite a feat. I will be looking forward to seeing more of your work on the site now that you have made such an impressive start. Thanks for sharing. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks for all the great comments! For those looking to see other pieces, I have (finally) updated my profile and included my web site. I am happy to answer any questions I can, but even after all this time, still consider myself a learner. I have a long “bucket list” of box related skills and techniques I want to learn yet.
