This is a set of prototype intarsia coasters that I’ve been working on.
Coaster wood and display rack are black walnut. Background is BE maple. Apple and cherries are bloodwood with walnut stems and poplar leaves.Bananas are pau-amerrilo with ebony. Grapes are purpleheart with walnut stem.
Still have to fill in with casting resin to waterproof and protect the inlays.

These are real pretty and look simple for a new timer to intarsia. Wonderful.
PEACE!!!

Those are way cool. Not sure you will find anyone willing to set a glass on them though…. Very nice work.

So cute, so sweet! Look more pretty in the display rack.
I hope my wife would never come across this post.

Hey I like. Those are neat. Can you use the pour on finish they use on bar tops that self levels?

Hi Jerry
I have used the table top finish that you mentioned. The biggest problem that occurs is that over time is has a tendency to yellow. Plus it cures so quickly that air bubbles get trapped if you pour more than 1/8” at a time.

Ok…............... I thought the epoxy you were using was the same thing. Evidently wrong.
