Mother of pearl inlaid jewelry box

Little box that I made with some vcarved mother of pearl inlay


The box itself was made using the MPCNC too, came out nicely :slight_smile: Inside still needs some polishing here.


Wow, I always wondered if these machines could do shell work. That came out nice and tight. The transparency of the MOP insert in that glue up photo is cool. Excellent work!

That’s actually the plug side of the inlay but you can definitely see through it in this pic, left about .2mm as a backer. Just kept the feeds nice and slow and it worked out great.


Very nice. I like these small boxes. I did a magnet mod version because I screwed up the lip on the base.

Earring box for my wife’s 40th, today

Did a laser engrave, but next attempt will be an epoxy fill or an inlay


Do it! :slightly_smiling_face:

My daughter thought she had it rough with her b-day being on the 11th of this month… x-mas eve, imagine that. Anyhow, nice work I am sure she’ll be happy with it!

She loved it

Yeah, I learned very quickly that we don’t mix Christmas and birthday. My first Christmas with her, 14 years ago, lives forever indelibly marked in my brain because I mentioned Christmas on her birthday. One year, she decorated for Christmas in the first week of December- and took it all down on the 21st- only to put it back up at 1am Christmas morning…

I have a file In my carveco ready to go, just need time to do it. It’s a tribal hummingbird design.

Maybe in a couple weeks
