A few weeks ago I posted a project I had built that I am sure everyone has seen in the woodworking magazines as well as a few books and in the post I had shown my third book rack and yes I am tired of making this exact project but I cant stop. I like it and I’m hooked. I thought I would change it up a bit by adding a bit of Marquetry to the sides. I set out to find a design that would compliment the style as well as the wood which is cherry I want to do this in the form of an inlay on e...
