August 2017

It’s been a while but finally getting the time and weather to start woodworking. My LOML purchased two more Y Yamamoto block prints and wanted frames made one of walnut and the other mesquite. Both are similar to the ones I made last year just larger.

The first is a mesquite piece that I inlayed some turquoise. The print is of the Greene and Greene “Duncan Irwin House” pergola with wisteria. If you ever have the chance to visit Pasadena it’s really grand.

The second is made of walnut with mortise/tenon square pegged. Both pieces were finished with Watco natural oil and Waterlux varnish.

Thanks T

Awesome! I love her prints. I was lucky enough to win one of her tiles and she signed the back for me. Very nice lady. Pasadena is great. I spent a ton of money on books at the Gamble house gift store. Also visited Thorsen house while living in Oakland.

I really love that pergola print from Yoshiko. Your frames did the artwork justice, and the turquoise is just icing on the cake.

Beautiful work! I like turquoise inlay. I wanted to make stone inlay furniture G&G style long time ago.

Have your say...
