I finally got around to making a jewelry box for the Mrs, and thought this would be the opportunity to make a “Paradise Box” (Vectric sample project), with a little twist (inverting the carved parts and filling them with black epoxy). I also made it much smaller.
Anyway, I thought I would post a few pics from this short project.
First, surfacing two pieces of plane wood tree, then carving them with a 25° vbit,
Then, a sloppy pour of black epoxy,
And surfacing it with a 1/4" endmill,
Glueing the pieces, sanding, more sanding, oiling, and done.
I wish I had carved the sides of the box too, the Vectric tutorial keeps them single-sided cuts for simplicity, but they look a little empty.
