I actually found some time to turn some Christmas presents before it was to late!! Main wood is paduk. Inlay is 1/16” maple sandwiched between two 1/32” black dyed veneers. The ellipse is cut on a table saw sled at 25 degrees. I don’t cut all the way through the blank so I have some alignment when clamping. All glued with :30 minute epoxy for better end grain adhesion and to reduce glue creep. Turned them with a jacobs chuck, dowel rod and a live center. When I had the boiled linseed oil and super glue finish where I wanted I mounted the turning in a four jaw chuck and cut the stub off and finished.
One down, seven more to finish.
