Still practicing… I have a lot of this maple, and since it’s easy to work with, I’ve been doing all of my practice with it.
I don’t really know how to do inlay yet… so instead, I positioned one of the streaks in the maple to make a nice offset line… it’s definitely not the same, but it’s the best I’ve got so far :)
I think I’m starting to get the hang of this… I’ve fashioned a jig to squeeze everything as tight as possible… and I’ve made a makeshift arbor for my drill to make sanding / polishing a whole lot easier… and it’s definitely getting a result.
I still haven’t gotten brave enough to try putting a CA finish on one of these (also, I don’t have any thin CA or accelerant)... but soon!
This was sanded through all of my micro meshes, and buffed with a coat of paste wax.
