  • Wedding keepsake box

    This box is made of cherry . and the figures are maple and the lettering is aspen.
    I had intended to inlay the motifs but I am not sure how to inlay the segments. Jim Sawyer suggested inlaying as one piece then carving in the details, but a v tool would be required which I don't possess.

    Sorry It was Jim Finn's suggestion, not Jim Sawyer.

    I think it turned out great the way you did it! That cherry is beautiful!

    Nice work.

      Very nicely done Harry. I like that a lot. Thanks for sharing it with us.

        I can see where inlay would work, but I like the applied technique as well.

        Beautiful piece. I need to do something for my niece before mid June.

        Too early to leave, too late to call in.

          Very nice. I like the way the grain pops out.

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
