I’ve been playing around with etched tiles and wanted a nice way to hang a few on the wall or to give as gifts.
This is made from proofgrade medium walnut ply and medium leather. The top and bottom edges have a 2mm inlet to retain the tile. An engrave at 550 / FP yields the desired depth. The corners are joined with finger joints to give me a little more wiggle room due to variance in tile size.
I kept the back as a solid piece to be able to engrave a dedication, which looks quite nice on the walnut.
