I wanted to try and learn to do inlay and had seen a similar project on LJ’s before and thought I would try. The project turned out pretty well but its is obvious the it is a first attempt. The project is a desk top book stand that was made for a silent auction at the church. It was made using walnut with Padauke and maple inlay. any and all comments or suggestions welcome Sorry the picture are not better I could not get an angle that the glare was not an issue.

Looks good to me. I think it should bring a good price.

Bubba, the inlay looks great. The lines look close and tight. I like the contrast of the padauk.

Thanks for posting it.

As a non-inlay adept, I never would have guessed that it’s a first attempt. Nice work! Suggestion on the glare: try turning off the flash and using an indirect light source or two. It works really well.

Very nice job. I sense that you must be a member of the United Methodist Church…

Looks Great! excellent first attempt. I can see why you had a problem sanding the padauk to fit (I had a chance to meet and visit his shop the last time I was in TN) I probably would have done the flame in two pieces to avoid that problem. the contract in the woods really worked well. Proud of you Bubba. Can’t wait to see the next project.

like the others have already stated, it looks fantastic.
I’d say you have the techniques down.

Nice job!! I like the contrasting wood, it was nice to see it in different colors that what I did mine in.
Keep up the God work. ( A little play on words)

I might try Bloodwood instead of Paduck for the cross on my next project of this kind, it should be more red. What do you think?
