I really liked the grain on this blank, and being a newbie to turning, bought it and brought it home. Little did I know that white oak is right below tungsten carbide on the hardness scale… At any rate, I got it turned and made my first attempt at inlay with glitter and super glue. Thanks to Trifern for sharing his aniline dye technique!
Wavy White Oak
Aniline dyes: black, sanded, yellow, sanded, then mahogany on the outside.
Size: 4” X 10”
Constructive criticism is always greatly appreciated. I need help from those of you with more experience if I am ever going to learn. Thanks!
