Dutchman Patches

Dutchman patches and bow ties for three days straight on this live edge walnut headboard. The “Dutchman patch” is an inlay technique that has been around forever (AKA: butterflies, bow ties, keys, etc) . These repairs and reinforcements are commonly seen on boats, furniture, doors, etc. The photo below shows an antique with some dutchman patches.Dutchman Patch  I’ll post more photos of the headboard when I get it finished.
