This is a bowl that I made using a easy inlay technique that I learned about in a class put on by my wood turning club in Maine. Its a Maple bowl with black palm inlay-ed with resin.

That’s very unique and I like the red border. Is that dye?

I wish they offered a class here, I’d be on it.

Very nice work on the turning and the inlay. It is very nice to see pictures of woodturnings.
