I mostly do stone inlay into wood. Often times this means having to build whatever I want to do an inlay into. With cutting boards that's pretty straightforward. When I tackled building a kitchen island - not so much. I'm always experimenting to see how far I can push the combination of stone and wood as an art form.

Very nice work. Is this pietra dura marquetry (aka cold stone marquetry)?

Thanks! Glad you like it!! It is not marquetry. Instead of the stones being cut to fit the spaces – they’re crushed and I place the crushed bits in the inlay with tweezers. I’ve done quite a bit of the cut stone stuff – but that was mostly for floors and backsplashes instead of inlay. I’ve moved almost entirely into the crushed stone inlay style because I wanted more control over detail and color fades.

Nice ! I’ve been using stones to highlight turned objects using similar stone varieties. Love what you are doing ! Goodon’ya, and keep experimenting !

Very cool.
Does wood movement ever cause the inlay to rise over time?
You must have the patience of a Monk. Keep them coming !!

The only time I’ve had trouble with the wood movement causing problems with the stone was on a test piece I did where I joined two different types of wood with the grains going different directions and only screwed them together (I rshould have glued them too). When the two pieces of wood shrank at different rates and in different directions in the extreme seasonal temperature and humidity changes of northern MN the stones right at the joint actually popped out. But since the stones beyond the ones right above the joint were unaffected I was able to re-work it and, since then, I haven’t had a problem with it.
