    The box and carving are tremendous Greg. How long did it take you to carve the lid?

    What can you build from an old bed scraps?)) I really don’t know what wood it is, all I know is – it’s light, fragile; some tropical wood I would say. For lid, bottom and inlay I used ash. I wish I have 1/8″ chisel for inlay groves, 1/4″ and a knife were a bit hard to work with in this situation. After all those talks about coffins I tried to make something different))
    And THANK YOU guys!! Every time you build something you inspire me too)) But special Thanks to Paul, Joseph and all other people behind Woodworking Masterclass, who help and inspire us.

    Serhiy that’s fantastic. I really like the inlay work. I’ve been wanting to give it a try for a while now. How did you size the inlay pieces?

    Thanks Greg! Well, it wasn’t that hard – wide strips on the lid are 1/4″ inch wide, the rest – 1/8″ inch. Made square ends first, glued them in, after that I used a knife and a sliding bevel to cut corners. It takes some time though.
    Sorry for duplicate pictures..((
