That is a real beauty! Simply magnificent. Great choice of woods and the inlays are really well done. One question…. is the lining felt cloth or is it blown in as with the flocking product & glue? Cheers, Wally

Well done on the use of Zebrawood for the leaves, it really makes it stand out.

Jr45, I made a template using 1/4” mdf for the leaves,,,which are 1/8” zebrawood that is glued together at about a 45 degree angle, but first one piece is placed on top of the other so I can cut it at a curve, to follow the shape of the leaf. then glue the curved pieces together.. The branch is free hand cut with a 1/8” bit, and then a 1/16” is used free hand for the leaf stems…..Thanks for looking..
