I like it Bob.
The stylized dove looks a lot like the one I used on my LJ Christmas card a few tears back. Mine came from Google images as I remember.
Nice work, inlay or marquetry?

I lifted the dove off the internet. Don’t have a clue what site it was now…. It’s just any inlay. I haven’t marquetry yet. LOL… Thanks for looking ya all….. Bob
