This is a cabinet where I wanted to show an inlayed design. The inlay is walnut, bubinga and mahogany with a maple background. Also, the suspended cabinet design was my first. The legs are made of Peruvian Walnut.

Magnificant marquetry – first of all! Also other design elements are more than usual – the table top is quite interesting with those angled ends.

Gorgeous cabinet! Really like the flow of the oak leaf motif. Did you do that as Marquetry or inlay into solid wood?

The pattern is inlayed into solid wood. Not sure the name of the process. I draw the design on tracing paper. I resaw the inlay wood to about 1/8” thick. Using carbon paper, I trace the shapes onto the inlay wood and then cut them out on a scroll saw. I then clean up the piece and spray adhesive on the underside, locate the piece on the background wood and stick it. I then scribe the outline of the piece onto the background wood. I remove the piece and use a 1/16” dia router bit to remove the wood to a depth that leaves the inlay piece proud of the surface by about .030”. I file a slight taper onto the inlay piece and clean up the cavity in the background wood. Once I get the piece to fit the cavity, I add glue and pound it in. It makes a good tight fit. I usually use a small block plane and scraper to flush the piece to the background wood.
