Excellent. How did you do this? Were the rose pieces cut out with a bandsaw?

I used a scrollsaw and the pattern was variation of a Steve Good pattern.

Ah! I have a scroll saw that I never user. Did you use spray adhesive to put the pattern on the wood then hand sand the pieces to soften the edges??

I put shelf liner on the wood first, applied spray adhesive, pattern then put packing tape over the pattern. You can get by without the packing tape but I like using it. The I used a dremel tool with burring bit and sanded it as well.

Beautiful! I personally like using a straight clear finish product on QSRO, because if I stain it, it gets too dark on the porous grain. NOT a criticism of your beautiful box, just an observation.

I used satin Arm-R-Seal for a finish no stain that is how it turned out after finishing.

Fantastic job - first attempt or not!!!!

One suggestion, if I may, is that you might want to consider which way the grain is running the next time. For example, imagine if the petals had the wood grain all coming from the center. Yes, this means using a lot more wood, but the effect is awesome. :)

Keep up the great work!

That is a beautiful piece..and you first one !!!! I'll bet you will get hooked on it with all the different color wood you can incorporate into intarsia!. I love that red heart wood. Does it stay red? I had a project where I needed red and I used red box elder but it faded to brown.

Cheers, Jim

Time will tell how long it will stay red. If it's like most exotic wood it will turn a brownish red, but it looks good right now. My wife always says she doesn't have room for more boxes. When I suggested giving it away for a benefit auction she said use one fo the other boxes.
