    8 Black Diamonds

    My latest work. Another turning from the Cedar saga, ebony finial and stand with 8 inlaid diamonds which are died holly veneers to embellish the lid.

    Thanks for looking

    Everything is better with inlay or marquetry!

    By Jove, I do believe he's getting the hang of it. That looks great, Dewey.

    Very nice Dewey... I took the liberty of downloading your pictures to my go-by files for some future project... I really like the inlays... don't know if I'll be that talented, but won't hurt to try...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    That is gorgeus Dewey.

    I like the "non traditional " finial of the lid.
    Best regards,
    Toni
