Dimple box

I made this box as a Christmas gift for my daughter. The plans are from the latest issue of Woodcraft magazine. I used my Shopbot CNC to create the dimple pattern on the lid and on the sides of the box. The wood is mahogany with maple inlay. I used green flocking to line the small tray and the bottom of the box.

Very nice. How did you make the dimples? Good job on the flocking.

Except for the dimples all of the woodworking is with regular shop tools. I have a Shopbot and excellent design software that I like for adding special details to projects.

Nice. Did you inlay before you did your miter work or after the box was together?

Great job on a great box!
Interior is very cool and the dimples add to the great character.

The inlay on the sides was done before cutting the miters. I cut the groove on the top on my CNC router and did the inlay after staining the top.

Thanks, I thought maybe you did the inlay on the sides first. First time I did it on the sides I did it after I had assembled the box and did not like how that process worked out. It looked good but I figure there is much less work doing it your way. Thanks for the response.

Tom, this was my 1st attempt at inlay. I did the sides prior to assembly but I could not do the lid that way. I can’t really say one way was better than the other.
