Keepsake Box with Inlay of A Bear

Custom wood inlay marquetry - Keepsake Box - Custom woodworking

This keepsake box features seven different kinds of wood for the marquetry inlay. I used walnut for the box itself. The top and mitered corner keys are made from hard maple. The tree is walnut, and the leaves are African Cerejeira. The bear’s legs, arms, and head are made of quarter-sawn African Mahogany. His belly and face are made from quarter-sawn African Makore, and his ears and eyes are made from European Pear wood.
