Ordered a pack of the veneer online so I was looking for some inspiration thumbing through the 40 pieces and when I saw this unusual one, fire was the first thing that popped into my head.
What I didn’t expect was the chatoyancy it would exhibit when it was finished!
That veneer is a perfect choice for this! Inlay into an engraving in Maple ply. I did sand the finish off the ply cutting the surface flat, and hit it with a water based satin poly.
Yeah well, in my exuberance I managed to break it up pretty well, so I cut off the bad because the good was too good for the trash. Better than average chance I will be able to incorporate a piece of it into a future project.
And he’ll have Fun Fun Fun until Dan takes the laser awaaay
