Playing with Inlays

The secret is that you have to press down in the right spot to open it.

I got inspired by the recent 2009 Woodturning Symposium in North Georgia. I really liked some of the inlay work I saw there so I figured I would give it a try.

The small box is elm with a purple heart insert and the taller box is a Bocote insert topping a box of some unknown wood that was growing outside my office. —woodturners like a good thunderstorm now and then… it means new wood to play with. 🙂

The bracelet is Bocote as well.
