Hi Tom, finally a moment for this one.

 

I am intrigued by the tendrils. I can't figure out by the description, and only assume that the tendrils are also inlaid? What a delicate element to the design! Thanks for showing us this one.

Hi Janel,

 

Yes, the tendrils are inlaid as well. Actually an easy technique - just make a small saw kerf, glue in short sections of the appropriately colored wood. The inlays are just thin sections (not very wide) sharpened to a chisel point and glued in one at a time next to each other. The more extreme the curve, the shorter the segment of chisel pointed inlay wood.
