  • Butterfly Inlay Box

    I know this is a box, but it is my attempt at inlay. The pattern is by Sue Mey and found in CEEC September 2008. I modified it by keeping the lid liner solid. I used Eastern Red Cedar for the box and Hard Maple for the butterfly inlay. I used FD Polar #1, #3, and #9 blades. The finish is sanding sealer and shellac. Comments welcome.

    Nice, like how you did that. It eliminates all of the small inlays.

      Thanks Rolf. I Sue's article, she just had fretwork and not small inlays. Only the butterfly is inlaid. A lot less work.

        This photo had me confused. THe image looks to be applied not inlaid. I expanded the image and it looks like the image is inlaid but has a backing. The shadows had me confused.

            Sorry about the photo, Jim. Yes, the butterfly is inlaid. I made the lid liner wrong, so I made it solid giving the shadows.

              Thanks, Melanie. I wish the sides were solid red, but that was all I had.

                Love that box Denny.

                The Red cedar looks well with the maple inlay. great job well done.
                Where did you get your red cedar? some woods are hard to get hold of here in the U.K.

                  Thanks Harry. I bought it online from Ocooch Hardwoods.

                    Wow. Well deserved ribbons for sure. Our fair started doing some new rules about 2 years ago. Entries into "Home Arts" can be just about any design. Entries into "Fine Arts" have to be original designs. I know a couple of scrollers who used to compete in Fine Arts, especially...

                    I'm guilty of not wearing eye protection while scrolling---other than the magnifying glass. But, I do wear wrap around safety glasses when I'm sanding, routing, etc. At the recommendation of my eye doc a few years ago, I did add one safety/health step though. He recommended that a couple times...

                    It is totally heartwarming to see that there is humor left in this world, and not everything has to fit some politically correct mold that attempts to please the twisted pantie nimrods. Scrollers seem to be some of the most well rounded and easy going group of folks there are. Even when we have...

                    I'd be far more concerned about lung protection, but I like some, use a magnifier lamp and wear glasses (not safety). i have broken many blades never had anything "fly" anywhere, well except my lower blade holder. I have glaucoma and cataracts (although not bad enough for surgery yet). ...
