I've been woodworking for about 10 years now. I'm always trying to learn something new. I believe we are all students to this craft and there's always something new to master. Right now, I'm into marquetry and inlay. I like to the idea of dressing up any furniture projects with a custom made inlay or marquetry piece. Silas Kopf & Paul Schurch are the styles I really like.

I made these for my sons school auction. They brought in $250!
They’re made from walnut & Sycamore that I was lucky enough to get from a local tree cutter. If I would have known the sycamore was going to be soo beautiful, I would have got more pieces. The turtle inlays are done with walnut, mahogany for the small one and sycamore, mahogany for the body and flower of the larger one. I also used Manzanita for the head and fins of the big one as well.

This is my first inlay project I have ever made. It’s 9ft long and 35inches wide. Solid walnut with two inlays of tuna in each corner.
The inlays are done with manzanita for the body, pauduk and purple heart for the side fins and yellow heart for the top and bottom fins. I filled the eyes with colored epoxy.
For the finish, I sealed it with shellac, filled the grain with crystalac and topped it with 6 coats of arm r seal.
