Every rose has its [something that is a woodwork joke]

Despite the recent radio silence on this blog I’ve been hard at work cutting the inlay for the parlour guitar. The inlay process will be covered in an article in Furniture & Cabinetmaking later this year (which is why I’ve not written more about it here as yet). But for now here is a sneak preview of the finished inlay; rose in sterling silver, mother of pearl, and green and red abalone. All set into the ebony headstock veneer. I always enjoy inlay work, and I am quite pleased with how this design has turned out.
