No question the client will like these! Great job on both and the homemade inlay is very impressive too. Thanks for letting us see them.

Nice use of small and short pieces. I usually try and buy my boards in bigger pieces. LOL

A great design. I like the Inlay stripes.

I’ve got a book on making inlays, but haven’t tried any yet.
I picked up a bunch of inlays on eBay about 6 years ago.

Great job, love the grain, inlay and finish. Very rich looking cup holder too. That would look good in my boat.

Nice job, beautiful wood and eye catching design, man, we have the opposite problem, here in Maine it’s so darn cold I can’t deal with more than 20 minuets at a time, it’s 7 degrees right now, thanks for sharing
