  • 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.

                    Every year for Christmas my wife renews my subscription to the magazine. This year she managed to subscribe to it twice. She thinks she was able to cancel one of the subscriptions but since it hasn't arrived yet she wonders if she managed to cancel both orders. Is there a way for us to find out if the...

                    I would be curious also. Back in March of 2014 the switch on my Delta quit working. Now last weekend it quit working again. Don't know if it's the switch or not. And of course I had a request from a friend of my wifes to cut something for a little girl. We've been talking about maybe getting a new scroll...
