Yesterday when I went to get the mail it included an envelope that contained three of these beautiful marquetry pieces that Paul /Shipwright sent me and I can not get over how nice and precise they are .
Today after getting my hide glue heated up I ventured to install two of them and I must honestly say I was a bit nervous but all went fairly well I cleaned them up after the glue had set and just had to stand back and admire them for a while and then called my wife to take a look at the precious gift I had received .
Tomorrow I will clean and sand them and my apply some finish but I want to wait until they are completly dry .
One went on my table saw sled and the other on my new design leg vise .
I will post the new super simple quick release leg vise fairly soon and also do a blog on it but be patient .
In conclusion I would like to thank my good buddy Paul /Shipwright for his awesome gift and buddies like him are far and few in between as most of us know .
Paul you made my day actually more than one .



That is a handsome gift worthy of a wonderful friendship. It’s really amazing how the internet has created these communities where real, not virtual, connections are made. I have some very close friends from a music related forum that I have never even met in person, although several I have as they’ve passed through town.

its heartwarming to see good friendships made, and paul is a wonderful guy, the inlay pieces he sent will always remind you of how gracious he is, looking forward to seeing where you have installed these….

Very nice gesture and I’m sure it’s being put to good use.
