I have been watching the boards and projects on here for months and decided to enter the Christmas present season by:

1. Stealing good ideas from the great craftsmen on this site
2. Using all of the scrap wood and pieces in my limited space that I call a shop
3. Trying to put my own twist on designs
4. Trying my hand at carving
5. Trying my hand at marquetry

So these are what I ended up with. Similar concepts and similar techniques on many projects, but all were unique.

First set of pictures are some of the “centerpiece” bowls that I created.

Thanks for looking!

It looks like you accomplished many (I did not see any carving) of your goals.
Very nice projects to start off the new year.

Eddie, not sure what you mean by “Find”? The center is my attempt at marquetry— a common design. The “bowl” part of it is more or less my own design, although I wouldn’t claim it to be original if someone protested as I am not sure of the source of the inspiration.

Some nice pieces Brad. Be careful with the marquetry though ….. it can be very addictive.
I fell down that hole a few years ago and I’m still falling (and loving it).
