« Part 5: part 5a Part 6 of Jewelry box series Part 7: Part 7 »

I have planned to trim back the walnut veneer back by 6mm(1/4”) and glue in a strip of zebrano on the corners.
I made a cutting guide using 18mm dowel, a hobby knife blade and a round piece of nylon which I had to turn on a metal working lathe to the shown shape as a stock, with a flat stock I would not get a parallel cut on the concave curves.

So I set to after a couple of trial runs and away I went!

After I cut through the veneer I heated the veneer with a clothing iron to reactivate the hide glue and removed the strip of veneer.

Then I set about cutting in the zebrano veneer. I am trying to keep the grain of the zebrano square to the cuvre of the box. (trying)

This is the design on the ends of the box.

This is looking good. I like your custom cutting gauge.

This design is really something! The inlays are a really nice addition, especially on that curved top. Wow!

Coming along very well. Scratch stocks are great tools that don’t seem to get much mention any more. I have made a few and find them useful for things I can’t do with much else. Yours is just the ticket for this job.
Well done.
