beautiful work barry! where did you learn your trade? what is the white material?
thank you for showing your work
all the best,
Unbeleivable!! How on earth do you do it? Doesn't it take weeks?
Are the colored tables etc. indiv. pcs. or painted on?
Really beautiful work..like nothing I have ever seen.
Outstanding work. Will you teach me how to do this? Who knows of a book on this? Please advise
How do you do the black lines as, for example, in the black on white "trumpet horn lace" image?
I saw some of Steve Latta's (sp?) work where he he used a router template on which he let an 1/8 inch bit ride. Do you a similar approach?
But then what happens in the more complex pieces (such as your rectangular top with the outlined faces) where the veneer grain changes within each cell?
It would be fun to watch you do it. Is there any chance that you'd post a series of images showing the evolution of one of your tops?
You should submit this to Wood mag. Im sure they would want to do an artical on your work. Very good work and sure would enjoy know how its done.

Barry- After a while you get numb to other peoples projects, And every once in a while someone hits a grandslam. Absolutly beautiful craftsmanship!!!! I'm a woodfinisher, Any problems with black dye wicking onto white wood? Where are you located, I have to see your work in living color, If they look so good in photos the real thing must be another rush! I bet i could add a little more icing to your work, I think i could give you even more three-d effects to your inlays, Again you are going to the top, You have learned well grasshopper! J.B.K.
OMG!!! I'd travel to Maine from dallas to see your place & work! You have a web site? You should be in fine wood work magazine. Please send me a link.
