    Hi Guys,
    Thanks for the nice comments ! Have got all the pattern laid out on the 6 white wood pieces and one completed .

    Photo attached to show how it will look. I have gone for a simple pattern. I had thought to use some colour for the flower but in the end decided that that would detract from the wood grains and colours and would in this instance look out of place.

    I hadn't planned to use pyrography on this piece but decided that the white teardrop was just too much of a glaring contrast to the dark walnut. I think the flower tones that down a bit and adds a little elegance to the piece.


    Dont think this will come alive until the finish coats go on. Then the grain should really show up.

    Hi Guys
    well have made some progress. I now have all the inlay done. Used burr walnut which was a mistake as it is quite difficult to cut shapes with fine points as the stuff only has to be sneezed on to break . It varies a lot some works ok and inch futher down the sheet will crumble with not a lot of pressure. I probably broke 50% in the cutting out and 30% on fitting them.

    12.5 hours to do the inlay 42.5 hours spent in total on the project so far.

    But wait there's more!!!! Next step is to do some pyrography on the white wood sections prior to fitting.

    Hi Guys
    Got the scallops done in the bowl wall. It took about an hour and a half to do each one. Cut it with the big gouge then used a curved scraper to take off the bumps then sanded down through the grades to a steel wool finish.

    Think the next step will be some inlay on the top edge of the bowl. I have a light coloured fancy burl veneer that would work ok for this.Then the white pieces can be fit to the wall of the bowl which will be pretty tricky to get right.

    Is not easy to photograph this to look its best but you will get the general idea. Might show up better with some finish on it I think.

    Hi Merle
    Yeah this one is sure different to any of the others but that is what makes it interesting to try to achieve. hehehe.

    Hi Claude
    You are not wrong this is not a 5 minute job hehe. And you are correct about the wood type it is indeed Kahikatea.

    Hi Joe
    No clam chowder for this one mate. Just a piece of shelf candy if all goes well hehehehe.

    I agree - this is a lot of work, but the end result should be superb! What is the white wood - Kahikatea?

    Hi Guys
    Cut the bits to shape with the bandsaw then trimmed to shape with the knife then a final sand to shape.

    Used chalk to mark the highspots on the bits as I sanded them down to the bowl wall profile.

    I laid the finished pieces in the bowl to give you some idea of what it is going to look like. The next step is to carve the same shape into the wall of the bowl to scallop the wallnut. This will be a bit of a mission and will take a couple of days to get right I think.
