  • Inlays ordered at my last show.

    I have made these patterns to order. One is cotton bolls for a gift to a local cotton farmer. These are the lids of cedar boxes that measure 11" x 8" x 2 3/4" deep. The white inlayed wood is pine and the dark is walnut. The Virgin Mary is inlayed poplar with carving. Ladybug is cedar inlayed into pine lid on a cedar box.

    Jim -- Nice! Did you burn in some of the lines? I'm having trouble seeing how you created the details.

      I carve the lines into the inlayed wood with a "v" tool and then fill the groove with a mixture of wood powder from my orbital sander and sanding sealer (Lacquer) . Let it dry and sand off flush. White glue and the sanding powder/dust also works for this.

          If I did not know better Jim I';d say you have done this once or twice before. Nicely done.

                Yes I make a lot of these cedar boxes. I have about 100 in stock right now. Folks seem to like boxes, especially to use as gifts. Many folks buy 2-4 at a time. When I get an order, like some of those pictured, I make others just like it so now I have about 70 different patterns and that number is growing.

                          Hi Jim
                          Very nicely done!!!!!!
                          2 Questions----ome is how thick is the inlay? Is it a piece applied on the top or is the entire top and shown through on the underside?

                          2nd question (if you will share) what is the price on them.

                          for a reply.

                            Here in West Texas the cost of living is low, as are the wages so I sell these boxes for $14 each. I make 15-20 at a time and it averages out to about 1 1/2 hours each. About ($2.50 in materials) Not much of a wage but my hobby is 100% paid for this way...... The inlay method I do is called double bevel inlay and the 3/8" inlayed wood goes all the way though the 3/8" cedar. Here is a photo of an open box showing the backside of the batter that is inlayed into the lid. A search for "Double Bevel Inlay" will get you to some instructions and explanations of this technique. It is not all that hard to do. The first one I did came out perfect.

                              Jim, those are beautiful. Tried my first inlays with the challenge that Jim and Jim offered. When and if I get back into the shop I hope to do more.

                                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...

                                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
