We’re working on a new king size bed based on one we made a few years ago shown in the first photo above. This one will be in stained curly maple and walnut and will have a total of 10 ducks inlaid in steel, copper and brass across the top of the headboard …Thge wood part is done, but the metal part I’m guessing will be a challenge … We have worked with these clients for years and they like to push us to see how far we can go … Metal inlays? Why not … We’ll be working with a metal shop with a cnc waterjet to rough out the inlay parts, which we will fit up, shape, polish and inlay here in the shop … I’m hoping the inlays can have a somewhat raised, three dimensional quality rather than the flat abalone ducks we did in the original bed … You can see an mdf version of my concept in the last photo above … More and larger pictures and process explanations on my blog
here ...
and here ...
Also an update on the really big claro walnut table i posted here about three weeks ago here …

Great work Dan. The duck inlays are going to be really special. I also like the way you laid out the spirals on the bed posts. I’ve done some spiral work marking up in a laborious way. Your method looks a lot better. The Claro Walnut table looks beautiful too.
