Where nature and art meet!
This piece was my attempt to depict the Alcazar of Segovia, Spain. There are approximately 100 separate pieces of various woods that were inlayed into a base wood. Much of the inlay of the castle is mahogany, and all the windows were made with black ebony from Africa. For each window a cavity is routed with an end mill the precise size of the window. Each window is coated with glue and then pressed into the cavity with some material left above the base. The excess material is sanded with several grades of abrasive for a flush fit. I used several coats of Deft for the final finish.
