- Gavin, that's a lovely piece of work! I tend to like
darker finishes overall, but that is a really lovely
box--the inlay is very striking!
Thanks for posting the pics!

- Well the Purpleheart inlay was done by cutting 4 strips, then I cut a 45 degree angle at one end, then I found the middle of the strips, and cut a 90 angle the width of half the strip from the end, and cut to the oend of the 45so it looked like thisThen I cut an x groove in the top using a router, set at a depth equal to the thickness of the veneer strips, I laid the 4 purpleheart peices into the grooves then filled in the 4 triangles shapes with little pieces of maple veneer I had laying around.IF the picture doesnt come thru, I will post it in my album.PeaceGavin

Beautiful! I love the inlay design (I'm a sucker for geometrics).
How did you join the corners?
