I made this 8’x6”x2” cedar box for a donation item for a Local university’s Christmas event for children. The theme this year is “The Grinch” . Woods used are: bubinga, poplar, bois d’arc, basswood, and cedar. Image is inlaid into the hinged lid using the “double bevel inlay ” method with a scroll saw.

That’s a wonderful box and for a great cause. The inlay is beautiful, you did a great job. The proportions of the box and the inlay are perfect. I would be nice to see pictures of how you do your inlays. They are superb. We’re all proud of our DD 214’s, thanks for your service and Thanks for inspiring
