I’ll take an Hour for $1,000.00 Alex. That’s how I feel about time right now. There is simply not enough of it, and I can’t even buy some of it.
I feel badly for my dwindling readership that I have not been posting very much lately, but my day job work load has increased two-fold and Passover is around the corner with all of its craziness. I simply don’t have time to do all the things that I want to do like blogging, updating my website, catching up on weeks of unanswered and unread emails, and repairing household pet damage.
So here is the quick skinny on the scrap wood hall table project. Construction is pretty much done. I need to do the marquetry on the top, decide on the shape of the ebony drawer pull and make it, decide what I am going to use for the finish, and then apply the finish.
After speaking with my mother about this project, I her told about my indecision regarding the theme for the marquetry on the top. Since the table is Asian inspired, she suggested using the image of a Coy. I liked that idea, and I am going to run with it. I think I am going to use a combination of marquetry, pyrography, carving, and gilding. You’ll just have to see what I mean later. Thanks mom!
Here are some photos of the project so far:
