Default My first inlay box!

This is a Steve Good project and I'm out of finish but will get some on it when I can get it. It will be a clear finish as the wood is poplar and the dolphin is ply. This is the very first time I've tried the inlay and I love the way it turned out. What I did was use a piece of scrap ply wood and some poplar and stacked those and then put the pattern piece on and then set the saw at a 2 1/2 degree angel and drilled the entry hole for that angle. Steve Good has a video on how this box is made but my computer has no sound so I had to guess at the angle. Any whooo I didn't like the way the ply looked so I put a dark oak finish on the dolphin and got that in and it looked great. I saved the rest of the scrap piece as it can be used on another box. I want to try more inlay.. I had fun with this box... Enjoy.. Fay

Fay, for your first inlay box, I would say it looks like a natural for you. Great Job. I have never tried inlay work but you have inspired me to give it a try.

Thank you every one. I did find a little bit of clear finish and put that on the box. It looks great now. I wish I had enough wood to make a few more inlay projects. My brother Stewart is bringing me some wood at the end of the month so that is good. I did find a small piece that I can make a bowl out of so that'll give me some thing to do for tomorrow. I might go ahead and try that little duck inlay that Jim Sawyer and Jim Mex had worked together. They did a tutorial and such in inlay and I looked at it last night but could not get the sample pattern to download. It's been on the forums for a long time. But will go have another look at it and Steve Good has a set of coasters that looks like inlay also so that would be a great one to try. I also want to try the inlace stuff but I'm not able to find it. After doing a google search for it all I got were inlace pen blanks. They are so pretty but those are for turning pens. Any one have a sourse for it?? Thanks for all the nice comments on my box. Fay
