Tea box with inlay

Tea box with inlaySo I wanted to kill two birds with one stone with this latest project: make a box and do some inlay. Since I have some black walnut and bubinga lying around I decided to make a tea box for my wife. The box sides and bottom panels are 1/2” walnut and the top panel is solid 1/2” bubinga. The center inlay is amboyna burl which I resawed from a flitch I picked up a few months back because it looked interesting. The inlay banding is just some 'black morado' I picked up from Rockler because it looked like it would be a good match. I put some black string inlay along the seam between the panels and the carcasse. I actually had a bit of a time with finishing this because I don't tend to grain fill but this turned out to be an issue with the inlay banding around the center panel. I could just never get that to finish properly. Fortunately, I had also picked up some grain filler a few months ago when it was on sale so I just gave everything a sand and started over. Hinges are just JB-102 1-1/4” Brusso 90 degree stop hinges. The center dividers are just some maple that I resawed and ran through the drum sander. I sanded them to smooth but didn't bother to finish them. They whole divder assembly isn't attached so if I ever decided to change that or the wood in there I can pull it out.

Snowman ornament on the lathe

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Snowman ornament on the latheBuilding some inventory for next years Christmas from firewood and a broken chair leg.
The piece of spalted ash was originally cut for a bowl blank, had rot running through it. Instead of firewood, I decided to cut spindle blanks instead.
I used a broken walnut chair leg to make hats for the snowman.
Used a story board pattern for replicating proportions for the snowmen.
