Not the best pics, but heres the story. I was redoing this kitchen table for a friend, who had an old table made of redwood water barrel staves that he wanted inlaid in a particular design. The central medallion is made of california sycamore, brass, local limestone, and purple wine barrell salts. The inlaid wood is barrell staves. It turned out rather nice, once I figure out how to sand the saft redwood with the hard oak. I actually had to strip it down twice and refinish it, as it was initially too uneven- What worked you ask??? A belt sander and sanding frame evened everything out.
Overall, it took 3x the time it should have, but I’m getting wine for trade, so life is good.
