Wonderful piece of woodart!

Do you apply a finish to your juniper works or are they left natural. The wood you use in your projects is georgeous!

Great Job Candy. Thanks for sharing!
I am going to have to try my hand at the inlay techniques that I see used by many on this site.

Hey Trev

Yes we do use a finish. On this lamp we use satin polycrylic. It is clear with just a little bit of sheen and it leaves the colors all natural
