    They look good. I don't do many boxes myself as most of the wood that I use is wet or at least too wet for boxes. Are those done with veneer or with sawdust mix? Ive used epoxy and brass, aluminium, or various wood sawdusts before (collect different colours from different woods) but not tied with wood of any sort. Got some ideas in mind if I can get it it off the round tuit

      I really like those boxes, the forms are perfect.

      I used to love making patterns in turned wood using carved recesses filled with wooden sawdust of a different colour.

        I cut out a recess in the lid then plugged it with say for instance a disc of solid oak then using a parting tool i cut off the part of the oak that stuck out of the lid and sanded it down to a finish. With the two inlays i just repeated the process once the first inlay had dried.

          Why do you use a parting tool? A skew or spindle gouge would get you a clean finish and lessen the need for sanding.

            To be honest i dont know.
            Ive never been tought by anyone so i make it up as i go along.
            I will try a skew chisel next time see if i get a better finish.

            Cheers.
