    Winged box

    I call this piece "Two Fairies"

    Not my best inlay work as I am getting used to the curved surfaces. It was a fun one though!

    Everything is better with inlay or marquetry!

    The form is amazing! Imagining it on a hallway table and just saying WOW every time I would walk by it.

    Just a wonderful piece. With or without the inlay its great design a work of art. I like your inlay just the way it is. Shows it was done by hand and not cnc. I find one runs out of words to express an opinion on a work like this.
    cheers

    Very nice work, Dewey. You're taking to the lathe like a duck to water. To be perfectly honest, I think the inlay (at least in this quantity) detracts from the lines and form of the box itself. I like the frames on each wing, but what's inside the frames looks a bit busy to my eyes. But that's just one guy's opinion, probably worth what you paid for it.

    Carry on man, you're doing great.
