Hi Branch,
I love the colour contrast. Also the floating bottom is a good idea. Did you fit that before the next ring or was it done after???
The pattern is very pleasing.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful! How did you protect the surrounding wood from the purple heart while sanding?

It certainly is different, I like it, the purple heart looks almost pinkish
