My first prototypes of this project went to relatives for Christmas gifts. I hadn’t used the lathe in 15 or 20 years and started with some avocado “firewood”. I kept refining techniques and learned to use glue liberally and patiently on the inlay. I used yellow heart and purple heart on this one with cherry as the core blank. The knurled texture was framed by burning with an old guitar string. Rockler sells the stainless steel hardware that is removable for washing. Finish was shellac and water-based poly. I had so much fun with this project that I purchased a new lathe and joined a turning club.

I am jealous. I have to finish getting my shop up before I can get my lathe going.

Nice work
