I made this inlay but am unsure what to do with it.
I was thinking maybe a coffee table or a hope chest lid ?
Any Ideas?

A blanket or hope chest would be nice.

It could be a back on a hall bench, seat. Seeing it leaned against your Jet saw I guess about 4’ X 2.5’ or so.

I think it would make a great looking top for a writing desk or library table.

Beautiful design and great craftsmanship.
I’d go with the coffee table as well (from
the apparent dimensions), but would care-
filly consider how to best protect it before
proceeding. I say this only because our
coffee tables get some serious abuse.

Coffee table with natural stain followed by “mirror coat” 2 part sealer would be a nice way to finish it.

Whatever you do with it – it’s sure to be a beautiful piece. Nice work. I like the coffee table idea also.

I like the idea of framing it in the back of a bench. It would look great. Like Bill said, whatever you do, it a beautiful piece.

You could give it to me! LOL!

I like the ideas of incorporating it into a table top somehow. Whatever, it needs to be displayed in clear view.
