  • 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.

                                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
