    Serving tray with marquetry and inlay

    My latest project is the Integrated Missile Defense Logo at my command done in marquetry with custom inlay all the way around it. The top part of it is black walnut and the bottom is African mahogany.

    It was made to hold coffee and tea items. The cylinder holds stir sticks which was my first turning with a tenon that had to fit perfect.... it did! I used mirror coat to seal the marquetry and wiping varnish sealed with shellac. I wasn't crazy about the finish but turning has me looking at finishes in a different light so I guess I can let it slide.

    Last pic is the original I was working from.

    Thanks for looking!

    Wow Dewey the tray is beautiful. I think it is great you fell into the vortex as the stir stick holder is a perfect complement to your flat work, congratulations on a job well done!

    Wow, nice work. Not just the inlay - the whole tray. That's really difficult work.
