  • 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.

    Harry .

    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.

              If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

              Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
