Made a small box for Mothers Day.
Walnut wood with a small cross that I got from Michaels inlaid in the top.
Casting resin to fill the cross, then lacquer over the top.
Sliding lid and felt in the bottom.
Zebra wood splines in the corners.

Ohhhh, so shiny! 8^)

Super elegant LRM!

So I see a horizontal seam in the grain of the lid plus an oval around the cross. Did you cut and fit all these or use some other technique?

Thanks splintergroup.
The lid was 1 piece cut in half. I routed out the oval in the lid and then put the cross in
and covered it with the casting resin.
Then lacquered over it all.

I’m not a fan of shinny myself, but mom likes it.
