Lots of boxes

So I just realized that I've only ever posted here when I have a problem, while you guys are posting all kinds of awesome things. Well, here's a handful of the things that the E2 has helped me make. I love this machine, and LightBurn is a huuuge improvement. 

Dice towers

These were made in 3-mm birch ply, walnut, and cherry (from left to right). I've also made them in cedar, purpleheart, and combined redheart and padauk. Purpleheart took all of a Saturday to cut out and required a lot of cleanup. Sheesh. 

Guitar pick boxes

This one has two pairs of magnets to hold the lid on, but most of them have been pressure fit. They're cut from layers of 3-mm wood (cherry here, but I've also done birch ply, cedar, and alternating layers of maple and walnut), and I either swap the grain direction or use a different wood for the pick inlay.

Circus box

One-off for a friend. Each panel inside has an engraved silhouette of a circus performer. That cherry inlay on the front is meant to look like an open tent flap. The interior is also cherry, and the rest is mahogany and bird's eye maple.



Marquetry and inlay

The T-rex is engraved mahogany with cedar (mouth) and maple (eyes), the stripe is walnut, and the rest of the box is cherry.



That's it for now. Thanks for making it this far!
