Oak lidded box – 9 cm tall – and …. of course finished in Hampshire Sheen
Category: January 21: Inlaid Box & ‘Winter’
My special Elm lidded box with copper wire inlay to body and copper powder inlay to lid
First attempt at a lidded box with hinge. Coloured black and gold embellishing wax to finish. Inside just HS High Gloss
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.
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.
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.
My attempt to combine the challenges, Sapele box, inlaid with snowflakes in epoxy and glitter.
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. ?
My take on the monthly combined challenge… a “Winter” inlaid lidded box! ❄ Beech box with an aluminium powder inlay to lid, coloured with HS intrinsics and HS embelishing wax ?
4” x3” Spalted box with Walnut inlay on the lid and an Isle of Man £1 coin inlayed on the inside
Here is my box in oak with sapele and laburnum inlay plus a milliput band. Wife thinks it looks like a pepper pot – thanks.
My winters tale. Chrisp frost sits on the golden golden hedgerows next to the fallow fields…. but within lies a warm cup of tea. Mahogany with black silica inlay, plum and brass inlay on lid with eccentric handle.
i tried to combine milliput and martin powder ..i think i need a finial on top
a trial ..banksia pod effect inlaid with milliput box ..i was inspired by tim yoder demo and tried it but a real bansia pod would be much better
