  • 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.

                            Hi Jim.

                            The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                            The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                            The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                            Don't know if you will get either of these in Mexico, but I'm

                            sure you...

                            Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                            I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

                            Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

                            I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

                            Well done!

                            Bstark, take a look at out simple table setup that I have posted in Bettys posting. This fair is an annual fund raiser for our churches women's group. So I pay for two 8 ft tables (so I don't need to bring any) A couple of nice table clothes and I put shutters on each end and made special shelves...

                            RJ actually that room was an add on to our sanctuary it was meant to be a Gym and the shutters where to protect the windows. I has never seen a basketball since it was built in 2001. Our pre school uses it and we use it for many events plus we rent it out for private use....
