Bird On A Branch

Editor's Choice - Jul 10, 2014

Wood makes great wall art! This piece has a couple of firsts for me. First time using shell for inlay and first time trying shading technique with hot sand. I may have gone overboard with the hot sand but it was fun learning something new.

Thank you! It is so much fun to play around with. I keep telling myself, one day I want to try a triptych (3 panel inlay) and we have several old cabinet doors to use…

There are some really great patterns (for free!) on http://www.craftsmanspace.com/free-patterns

I got this pattern from their site and this was one of the very first inlays I had done – and I was hooked!

Very nice Terry, the sand shading really gives the marquetry depth and the shell in the bird looks fantastic. I think everyone would love to have this hanging on their wall.

Terry,

One week sounds awfully fast for such precise, beautiful work. We really love the other one you posted above, too.
