You can’t make just one tray. Someone you know and love will want one too.

This is just plain “Gorgeous”!!!WOW…....... I have never done inlay like this and sure would like to try. I absolutely Love the Celtic designs.
Probably a silly question, but, is the maple the solid piece in the tray? and then all of the other inlayed?I am assuming all of the other is also veneer??
A blog on your process would be wonderful if you are so inclined and have the time. Maybe on your next masterpiece…...............
Thanks for sharing

Sorry I didn’t include construction detail in the initial post. Here goes!
The curly maple is a piece of ¾ solid. The checkerboard pattern is achieved by routing 1/8” horizontal line 1/8” deep and pressing thin strips of walnut into the curly maple. The 3/8” round plugs are pressed into the maple about ¼” deep. The Celtic design outline is routed out of the maple. A solid walnut piece is routed in the Celtic design outline and glued into the curly maple wood. After drying the interior Celtic pieces are routed out of the walnut, and pieces are pressed into place. Tung oil finish and that’s about it!

Very very nice! Wonderfull design and great build. Truly a masterpiece. Sory but it would NEVER see a knife at my place. Just hang it on the wall so everyone could admire it.
Keep it up
