Keepsake Box Photos by Allan Cusworth; Lead Photo by Vic Tesolin This project is an exercise in turning with a four-jaw scroll chuck and uses some special tools and techniques.To make it more interesting I have chosen to alternate dark and light woods for the inlaying process in order to create a layered pattern.
The dark wood is black walnut and the light wood is maple.Any dry hardwoods can be used.It is important that the woods used are of similar hardness so that the different expansion coefficients will not cr*ck the glue joints over time.
Do not use a combination of hardwood and softwood.Suggested Tools and Materials:The dimension noted here are for a Teknatool Supernova chuck.Yours will probably be different if you are using a different make or model.
