These 2 small dressers are made to the same dimensions as the last 2 I posted. They were for the client’s one year wedding anniversary, so I convinced him to let me inlay their wedding invites into each top. I used a glue stick to seal the paper to the tops, then one coat of epoxy to seal the whole top. For the epoxy, this time I made a tape border to keep it off the edges and that worked well when doing one thick coat.

Now that is a unique idea. These turned out very nice and I am sure the customer loved them. Beautiful work.

All your stuff is beautiful but the “inlays” made these very special.
