  • inlay on a box lid

    Yesterday I whipped out this box for a niece's 8th BD. I used some clip art for the parrot. I'm still 3-d impaired, so really need to think about the angles for the holes and the direction of the cuts. Thanks to the other Jim's for the tutorial and for giving me courage to try multiple piece inlays. There are more complex things that I want to tackle, but I needed to get this one done and in the mail.

            Nice Job Jim. I really like the parrot. The inlay looks great.
            I tried the inlay challenge & I also still need to think about the drilling angle & cuts.

                Thanks for the comments. It seems that I've been out of the shop way too long. Good to get back in there.

                        Nice job. I have the same problems with drilling the holes and direction of cut. I think in time it will just get to be a natural thing for us.

                          Today I received a phone call from an excited girl telling me how she likes birds and loves the box. Now that is my kind of payday.

                            Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                            Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                            Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                            My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                            I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                            Was it a good idea.....?...

                            Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                            The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
