8-7-2014 temp 25c morning and midday light

I say these photos are for furniture designs but the truth is, now I would rather take photos than rough it up out in the shed. I really need an editor to go through all the shots before I even look at them. I would really like to attempt some marquetry with the last shot.

I understand completely.
I have several hundred ” marquetry project?” pictures that I will never get around too …... But the natural (and architectural) world is just so damned inspiring. As an example, here’s one I’d like to try. I love the reflection.

Thanks for the comments fellas.

That would a tricky one Paul but I think you could pull it off.

Re: the stainless rail and shadow. I’m thinking of two planes, raised at the curb. The tricky bit would be the rail and shadow.

Rail abalone or pearl, shadow ebony.

” Ablam” , is the mdf of pearl ( very thick) or a “paper pearl” product just glued of the surface and buried in polish.

” Fender” paper pearl. I’m not committed, just thinking out loud. This is my “beach guitar” that never gets anywhere near the beach. It just never gets put away at home.

It would be fun to follow along with the flow if you are so inclined to sharing your process.

I would share the process AFTER a job well done. I got into trouble with an online elec. double bass build when things went south. All the photos were of a Solomon Blackwood finger board, then all of a sudden the fb is Bubinga. Too much explaining to do.
