This one made me remember why I like doing this. Lately I have been making work to sell, but this one is for my wife’s parents 50th anniversary and when I’m making one with someone in mind I have a lot more fun. I combined some different methods that I have used in some of the other pieces I’ve done. I cut the letters out for the names in the sun and then used epoxy mixed with some ebony dust to fill it in. I did some wood burning to give highlights to some areas and I got to use some wood I have never used before.
It is 18×24 and is up to an inch thick, it has 427 individual pieces. Wood used were: cortez, teak, aspen, blood wood, curly maple, palm, poplar, osage, lignum, cocobola, wenge, walnut, oak, brazilian rosewood, purple heart, cypress, babinga, bacote, yellow heart, spalted tamerin, blue pine, mahogany, ebony, cherry, zebra wood. It was framed with brick molding and finished in satin. No stains (besides frame) were used to achieve the colors.
Hope they like it.
Thanks for looking
