Celtic Art in an Italian Bar

My local pub the Pora Ca’ had a pillar in the centre of the bar with an empty space, which I offered to fill. I had been experimenting with router inlaying so I had a couple of pieces lying around which I put a bit of framing around and gave them to my friends the owners. The wood is Walnut. I may do a Blog on this subject if there is any interest.
PS the last picture shows the pub sign and a view of the Alps from the terrace of the pub.

Wow very cool! what kind of router bit did you use and did you make a jig for this or just by hand.
Very cool job

First may I appeal to talake to post his SPAM elsewhere.
Thank the rest of you for your interest, I will do a Blog on this.
Yes I did use a template for these, the wood is Walnut but I’m afraid the inlays are just strips of plastic edge-on. I am trying to find a wood flexible enough to use instead, but so far no luck.

Nice work Gerard! I got a bunch of Celtic patterns from my son. Maybe I will give it a try sometime. Are you getting freebies at the bar?

Lovely work. I envy the view from your pub. I also hope they are keeping your mug full.

Have your say...
