In this piece of work, I tried to get the right contrast in the face, with only one type of wood (walnut). It took me some time to pick the right pieces, but overall im satisfied with the result.

Re: Will Smith

I found this as a picture on the internet (It was actually a fan-made drawing). I printed it and cut all the outer lines on the background peace and then started creating the detail.

Re: You Want What? Contest

The most challenging thing I've ever made was during my internship, last year (I'm a student at a woodworking school in the Netherlands). A client came in with a problem. They needed a HUGE '&-sign' to be built (that's how we call it). It was about 80x60x30 inches, fully dimensional as the curved parts go past eachother in a 3-dimensional way. It was a pretty tricky thing to built, espescially because it had to be done in about 20 days, from first meeting the client, to finishing and delivering. We started making a skeletal-formed base. After that we glued and nailed 3 layers of wacky wood on the sides and finished the last layer with thin MDF. After a lot of milling and sanding it was sprayed in a white color and off to the client, leaving a bit of a problem because at first,it didnt fit through the doors....

When I asked them what it was used for, they said: "Ahh we just need it for a commercial photoshoot and then we will probably never use it again" *smile*

Re: A Simple Way to Inlay Mother of Pearl

Has anyone tried finishing a pearl-inlaid piece of wood with oil (Danish, or whatever)? Graig mentioned that laquer does the job, but how about oil?
