« Part 3: More Progress Part 4 of Gracie lectern series Part 5: drawer and knob »

This weekend I put a pretty big dent in the progress on this project. I inlayed the patches and also carved the belt. For those of you just tuning into this project the materials are Natural Bamboo, Amber Bamboo (belt), maple (inlay on padauk patch) and Padauk. There’s a ton of sanding left to do and a whole section of marquetry. After that the belt and letters need dyed black and the box needs to be dyed white. That will be quite the project in itself.

As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.
