So I'll start by saying I am not a woodworker. My brother recently has gotten into it, primarily small jewelry boxes, a shelf or two, chessboards, etc., and I was thinking of a gift idea for him. He has pretty stocked shop in his basement but it's mostly maple and cherry.
Wondering if you all have some suggestions for some more decorative, colorful, ornamental (whatever the term is) woods that could be for inlays, small details, etc. If so, what are some interesting types and the typical size pieces for that kind of stuff? Like I said he typically makes things on the smaller side so I can't imagine it would need to be too big but what do i know. Any insight would be much appreciated.
Also, feel free to hijack this topic to just post projects you're working on, or pictures of finished projects because I know some of you on here must be making things and I'm all for Hokies sharing their talents with other Hokies
