Hi to all -
Have not been around the board too much -
Life has been pretty busy -
Very nice to see "d in c" back.

designed for cd/dvds, but the
shelves are adjustable - so
could accomodate most anything.
15" across, and
6" deep at the side walls.
Main body and door is
The bird is Marquetry - which is
cutting-in the colored wood
into a veneer that is the same thickness
no physical 3d carving - just some

The bird is mostly
Osage Orange, &
The branch is
The white border is German Maple.
I built a wood form for vacuum pressing.
I have not tried making a form from styrofoam -
but it is on the list to play with.
Have not seen Darryl Keil's video, on

Have heard good things about it.
The door was made by
vacuum pressing 5 layers of
1/8 bending ply to form the core.
Once the veneers & marquetry were done
it was pressed again.
Finish is the usual
Thanks for looking
