Woodworking – marquetry, modern art and pyrography birds & new box

Bob has been busy.   Here is his latest box.   The wood grain is gorgeous.  It is  about 11″ by 7″ by 2″.  The wood is Bubinga from West Africa and the ends are dyed black which was something new.

This pyrography piece is 7 1/2″ by 11 and is the third time Bob has made this one.   We thought it came out quite good.

This is a fantasy bird and I love it.   It is about 7″ by 9 1/2″

He has been wanting to do some modern art type marquetry and this piece was inspired by my mothers crazy quilts.   He wood burned the “stitches” around the pieces of wood.   This one is called “Pretty in Pink”.   It is about 10″

This last one turned out really, really nice.   It is called “Mother and Child”. It is about 10″.

So far the people we have showed these last two to have been very complimentary.   It’s a great way to use up all the little pieces of wood.   The pictures don’t do them justice.

Now we are trying to figure out a way to hang all of the art work without putting lots of holes in the wall.   We have a couple ideas.
