My first stab at Intarsia -- a box with a rose on the lid. I saw one by Robert Ardizzoni and thought it would be a nice mother's day present for my wife. It's made from walnut and maple. She has a bit of trouble getting the lid to sit properly, as it is hardly symmetrical!
I need practice with the flocking, tho. Probably not enough glue to start with. Any thoughts on how to repair it without scraping it all down and redoing it?

Very nice, Dave! I wouldn't touch the flocking, just let her use it. Practice on another piece and then make her something else. Gotta' start somewhere and that's a great start. Make another one and post it here 'cause that one is very nice!

Nicely done Dave!!!

my experience with flocking is s that once its down, its down and any attempts to "repair" just lead to more issues. Spreading the glue evenly seems to be the best way to go about it, then BLAST it with a flocking gun. I use a cheapy cardboard tube with holes in the end and actually it does a really nice job.

Next rose you do, give Bloodwood a try.....

again, nicely done

Dave the flocking doesn't look too bad. I like the design and I'm sure she will love it.

Great job, Dave.

When I do flocking, I use TiteBond Original yellow glue and then add acrylic hobby paint in the same color as the flocking. When I do the inside of boxes, I typically pour the material in the box and shake, rattle and roll until the entire surface is covered and as we speak, it has worked for me.
