  • Pillow Top Box (Reverse Inlay)

    G'day all,
    I haven't posted anything new in a while, have just been to busy making standard stock items which you have all seen.
    Decided to play a bit and finally finish this little box. I've had the carcase assembled since mid 2009, just couldn't find a suitable pattern for the top.

    I suppose you could call it a "Reverse Inlay"

    It is Radiata Pine with Jarrah inlay and Bands

      John, that is really cool and neat and skookum. I really like the invisible entry holes. Mine look like they were made with a tunnel bore drill. You do great work.

            John, I think waiting until you came up with the right lid design was the right choice...what a wonderfully executed box! Luv the wood choices, design and uniqueness!!! Really like the tray that lifts out.
            Thanx so much for sharing!!!

                        Your craftsmanship is something to strive for JohnB........love the box, and what a nice touch with that little lift knob. I'm "steeling that idea" just so ya know up front.

                                I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
