The best laid plans…....
I originally planned this as a flat board with an inlay band around the perimeter. I routed the shallow channel for the inlay, glued it in place, and everything fit beautifully. Then, during final sanding, I sanded all the way through the inlay in one spot. AAARRGGHH!!!!! The best lemonade I could make out of this lemon was to rout a decorative channel where the inlay was, and slap a frame around the whole thing to give it a 3-d motif. The woods are red oak and walnut, by the way.
Oh well….live and learn. :-)
