recent inlay projects

Postby endgrainguy » Tue Mar 10, 2015 2:36 am

Haven't posted for awhile. Here are some inlay projects.
This is inlaid and then carved. Taken from image of a painting.
Here lighting is exaggerated to show carving texture. Very low relief. Done with jpeg to component tool.
Ebony, koa, claro walnut, holly and silver. For a client named Lenore. Squawk, squawk...
Harder than I thought it would be. All wood. Ebony, holly, bloodwood, satinwood, pink ivory
Taken from an ancient stencil used to create repeating pattern on textiles. Over 1000 pieces. Ebony, bloodwood, satinwood, leopardwood, in quilted maple case. It's a tea box.
I thought this was supposed to make life easier?

Now THAT is some Elegant Craftsmanship!! :)
LOVE the "harder than I thought" Box!
Beautiful boxes :)
A bit mind blowing trying to sequence all the intermediate steps on only a few sips of my first Cuppa though :D

Excellant work. I really like the Koa but would have a hard time singling any of them out from the rest.
