Aluminium Powder Inlay

Oak lidded box – 9 cm tall – and …. of course finished in Hampshire Sheen

Copper Special

My special Elm lidded box with copper wire inlay to body and copper powder inlay to lid

Hinged Lidded Box

First attempt at a lidded box with hinge. Coloured black and gold embellishing wax to finish. Inside just HS High Gloss

Winter Snowfall

This is a bowl in poplar/tulip wood measuring 8″diam x 2″ high. The underside is finished in Hampshire Sheen and the surface is unfinished with white epoxy putty (Milliput) filled into drill holes before cutting back and sanding. With apologies for the late post.

Inlaid lidded box

Ash lidded box with H/S bronze inlay powder, lots of tool marks but lots of fun!

Winter Blues

This is an ash bowl, about 9.5″ wide, the hollowed out bowl is only about 4.5″ wide, and it stands around 1 3/4″ tall. I used 3 different colors of mica powder mixed with resin to fill the channels I cut in the rim.

Ice, ice baby

A box based on one turned by Les Thorne. Cherry which has been painted with white gesso, over which, there is blue iridescent and then pearl white sponged on – all Jo Sonja.

Snowflake Box

My attempt to combine the challenges, Sapele box, inlaid with snowflakes in epoxy and glitter.

Boxing with Zebras 🦓🥊🤪

My first go at a small bookmatched inlay lidded box, approx 2 by 4 inch. A piece of sapele with contrasting lime insert at lid joints with a zebrano bookmatched inlay, a little texture detail and of course YG & HS products to finish. 🙂
