Hello there! I’m Stan.


Encouraged by @evansd2, I had a first go at doing a simple inlaid box. It was educational and, feels like it is not terrible.

Designed entirely in Inkscape (instead of my usual, Corel Draw).

Proofgrade cherry hardwood with flip-fit maple inlay. Good but, not snap fit on joints, held with wood glue. Finished with a couple coats of wipe-on poly. The lid fits snugly enough that the magnets were likely unnecessary.


Overall dimensions are 2.5 inches square and 1.55 inches tall. Bottle cap for scale because I am not really into bananas.


Next time, I will try to get the grain of the inlay aligned better.
