Don't let the curves or fine lines of this eye-catching inlay fool you. To make your own, simply cut kerfs in a squared turning blank, glue in splines built up from contrasting veneers, then shape it on the lathe. To demonstrate the process we incorporated a Celtic knot in the Turned Table Lamp
. The procedure adapts easily to a variety of turnings.
