Ron and Julie Flint enjoy taking advantage of the natural beauty of wood to create functional and affordable pieces of art.
There are about 25 steps to our unique process. We start by cutting small square, rectangles and triangles out of our favorite woods, then puzzle them together into interesting combinations of shapes to create the final patterns. Next, we laminate these pieces together in 2" thick blocks about 3' long. To create some patterns we go through this step a few more times. Then we use a meat-cutting blade on our bandsaw to take thin slices. After sanding we apply a furniture quality finish and finally polish with steel wool.
While Ron's woodworking dates back to grandpa's hobby-woodshop as a youngster, and then shop classes from 7th grade through college, he and Julie have been working with their current inlay patterns in a variety of items for more than 10 years.
