This is a mahogany plate that I inlay-ed with black palm square and yellow colored resin. This resin is so much fun to work with.

Looks great!

I have experimented with both fiberglass resin and epoxy. Exactly what type of resin did you use here?

Very nice effect Brian and gorgeous plate. I’m curious about pic. 2, the clear stuff in the groove prior to setting the blocks. What did you use, and why?

rance, That is clear resin you have to seal the wood so the die wont seep in to the wood grain.
