here is a WIP on the way I created the Pewter inserts and ending up with Box's and Paper weights.
These in the Pic below have all been flattened one side and the edges turned to a standard size the pattern on some of them was created accidentally by the tool chattering.
That is the Pewter discs sorted now to put them to good use I have decided to make Box's from this lovely Walnut with textured Pewter inserts.
This bit of Walnut is approx 18" x 4"and I was thinking I could get three Box's from it.
I cut the wood into three pieces 6" long intending to make a Box from each.
When all the work was done on the lid I eased it so that it was not too tight
The two at the back are Box's and the two at the front are Paper weights
