  • 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.

                    I print mine using folded card stock. I keep around a dozen in each car and set out 40 - 50 at each showing ( and have run out a coupe times). I know they work because people come back - email or call.

                    Very nice. I think I know what is giving the bad eye. The front bumper needs to have a small bit shaved off on the right side. It looks as if there is a bump hanging down. I see it in the picture also. I think that it has to do with the lighting. I would take a straight edge and lay it on the...
