poker chip box.

Just finished a poker chip box for a friends husband. Made out of cherry with my first attempt at an inlay.

Very nice. Did you use a router for the inlay?

I did use a router. And borrowed a scroll saw to cut out the numbers. Its not perfect bit not bad for a first time.

Question for you when cutting out the numbers did you cut them out at a slight angle one or two degrees? If not in the future by doing so you end up with a fit that it you are slightly off can be pushed into place and then it's tight and all that you need to do is sand until flush. Nifty project

Thanks for the heads up. I used a flat bottom router bit and used my sign making jig.

Cool box, your cherry has pretty grains and the inlay is a great accent. Great job!
