Skull keepsake box

This is mt most favorite box of all. Loved it so much I kept it for myself. Walnut and red oak with pyography see, hear and speak no evil.

Appreciate the enormous investment in design and labor. Sure is a "keeper!"
Any appetite to use metal or shell inlay on any of your boxes?

Thank you and yes I'm looking into adding some metal work into some of my work.

Copper is symbolic of wealth and prosperity in the Pacific Northwest.
Pieces of copper-clad printed circuit board polish up very well.
I use the copper rivets sold to harness & saddle-makers.
Stew-Mac is a good luthier's supply for Mother of Pearl in sheets.

Yes sure can. Are you talking about the tools used for the pyography?

Yes, the details you were able to get are incredible. I've messed with a wood burning tool and found it to be sloppy when trying to do something intricate. I find the wood reacts much differently between the grain and the grain itself. It might be the type of wood I tried it on, or just might be I don't know the proper tools to use for this type work.

Sure thing. First thing in the morning I'll post photos of what I used.
