Quick and dirty:
Simple 2” cube box with a highly engraved top. 1/8” solid maple.
I just wanted to see what an edge to edge engrave would look like on a top like this. The top is butted up against a fingered base (this way no fingers get in the way of the engrave). Simple and easy, lined with 1/16” walnut.
Would I do it the same way again? Nah, I’d have a border that is either unengraved or engraved solid black. The rough edge is kind of cool but not refined enough for my tastes.
Engraving came from this excellent site from @rbtdanforth…
