  • Yet another inlay

    One of my customers requested that I make a box for them with a magnolia blossom inlaid into the lid. This is what I came up with. I made five of them because I like it and think others may like it also. I got the image through an image search on the web. Flower is made of maple and Bois'darc and leaves of poplar. Box lid is eastern red cedar.(aromatic) Magnolia.jpg

    Very Nice, Do you use a router or moto-tool to do the inlay?

          WOW Jim that came out great. From the picture it looks like marquetry.

            Looks great, Jim. It looks as though you used single pieces for the flower and the leaves, but veined them to get the additional detail. Colors are great, and I'm sure they won't last 5 minutes at your next show! Scott is right that it does look like marquetry. Great design and execution.

              Thank you all for the kind words.

              CHawlk: I use a scroll saw only to do this double bevel inlay/marquetry.
