I built this display case for my son’s collection of shot glasses. Walnut & Maple with Birch plywood shelves. The “C” is a hand carved Mother of Pearl inlay. This is my first successful attempt at inlay. MOP is tough to work with! Very fragile material! The display is complete with a sliding plexi glass door to keep ‘em clean. Finished with Danish oil & General Arm-R-Seal. Thanks for looking.

The inlay looks very cool. How did you do it? I haven’t ventured out in doing any inlays that weren’t straight lines. ;-)

BrandonW- Thanks. I cut the inlay first with an xacto knife & then I carved the cavity to fit with a small gouge & chisel. I used CA glue. That’s probably not the correct method for inlay, but it worked out ok. Almost forgot, I used plain old Scotch tape over the MOP before I started cutting just to reinforce it. Peeled the tape off once it was glued up.
