    Rosewood inlay table

    Well I figured it is time that I start showing that I do some work other then ask questions. I ended up with 6 coats of spray on shellac and then french polished. Followed up by a quick buffing after the table cured for a week. Hope you like it. Thanks to all for the help. Thanks Tod for support line.


    Just for a reminder of what it started with.

    WOW Al, that is fantastic I remember when you first showed that and it scared me as it is not something I would/could even think of attempting to do..... you nailed it

    Talk about brought back from beyond . . . beautiful work Al. Great color and good definition on the inlay.

    That's amazing inlay and very difficult to do. I couldn't even think of a picture, let alone do the inlay and shading. Very impressive work.

    It looks like work I've seen done in India.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    The table was made in india around 1890. If you look at it in person you can see many small defect from being hand made. Some of the inlays are proud of the rosewood, while others are shallow. The owner's wife decided after doing wrok at one of there hotels thst I should fix up the table for them. I just wish it was in better shape when the brought it to me. Thanks for the kind words.

    Man Al, that's about 1000% improvement. You brought it back from the brink of death. Great work.
