RTV has posting such cool inlays I decided I better get off my a$$ and do some. The first ones are just a simple heart in the bread boards I do. I’ve been getting $27 for that size. I’m not sure why the heart flipped since it was straight up in my file. The heart is made from repurposed maple. A neighbor threw out an old butcher block counter top so I have a hefty piece of maple to play with.

Sweet. Great work, Jim.
Which inlay process did you use?

I wanted to try both, so the hearts are the straight inlay, the bon appetite is vcarve.
