I was only working there in Engineering but everywhere I went in the public area I could almost feel the hands reaching out for my pockets at every turn. Even in the Engineering area the stuff from the sandwich shop was very expensive as they had an exclusive deal that cost them a lot of money and so we got to pay for that as well.
If I wanted that,
1/16th or 1/8th and it would do for me… but that’s just too thin!
The benefit here is cost of really rare stuff like burls and exotic woods. You’d use this as an inlay most likely.
I intend to glue the veneer to wood, then do a full cut through the veneer and the substrate to make a full cutout inlay rather than try to engrave a pocket type inlay. Pockets are too fiddly and too slow.
If I get to it soon I’ll post about it.
I love that idea! and I will have to try it pocket inlays are a pain.
All my inlays are full cuts. Pockets aren’t worth the trouble.
Ok, I have too much material that I can’t get through, but I ordered this. My wallet hates this forum.
Me too. Then I went and looked at his other stuff and ordered a whole bunch more. I need to start thinking up some new projects.
Spill! What did you get? You too, @jbpa…
I have a hard time deciding, his stuff is really great.
I just went with the Walnut Burl for the moment.
The fumed oak was tasty too:
Yeah that ebony caught my eye too. Good choices.
I have two great pieces of solid Gaboon ebony one about an inch and an eighth and the other perhaps 3/4" thick in Orlando if they have not been made off with, but If I can get them (and a lot more) it will be fun trying to make thinner pieces from them.
How’s the quality of this batch?
I really like that they label everything! I only wish they had 1/4 inch stuff.
