I’m working on my entry for the San Diego County Fair’s “Design In Wood” competition. It will be a guitar to fit the theme “Heros Re-Unite”. I’m building a guitar inspired by George Barris’ 1966 Batmobile. This will be the inlay on the back.
What kind of colors? I bought alcohol ink markers but cannot get anywhere near that level of detail.
BIF, BAM BOOM, Batman!! That is very cool! Hope you show the final guitar!
This is made with pre dyed veneer. You can get it at Rockler woodworking stores or Amazon.
I will. It will be another month it so, but I will definitely share the final product.
Wow. Yes, I’ve seen the veneer at Rockler. So the whole thing, including the detail on the faces, is inlay? That’s amazing.
That looks so awesome! Yes, please share the final product!!!
Yes, everything is wood veneer, even the face details. I’ve dialed in my cutting technique to allow very small detail pieces without burning them up.
Thanks for checking it out.
That’s wonderful detail! Great marquetry.
Thank you so much!
Amazing!! I am a Bat fan & a tad jealous! Well done. Looking forward to a peek at the finished work of art!
Just adding my voice to the choir of cheers for this fantastic work in progress. Sweet music in the making.
Very nice inlay work. The colors that you have chosen fit the characters perfectly, and your name and logo on your is a nice touch too.
Thank you so much. It’s almost time for a new logo on the GF sled. That one has been on there for 2 years now.
Thanks so much. I’m quite happy with it. I can’t wait to see it on the instrument. I’ll share when it’s ready.
Holy reminisces, Batperson!
That is terrific. The small pieces you cut to form the faces, especially the eyes are quite difficult to get right. It definitely looks like you are building the winner to me!
Great work!! Love the look of the veneer.
Wow, really great work. Makes me think of stained glass with the way you inlayed the woods together.
