Thank you for the complement Philzoel. I crush the inlay material myself, carve out the pattern in the wood, inlay with CA glue, then sand, then repeat per color.

I don’t know how I missed your inlay work before. I like your use of colors and materials.

I use epoxy and acrylics to do similar work. I did a blog on how I do them here: http://lumberjocks.com/JoeyG/blog/series/4660

Maybe you could give it a read and we can compare notes. I really like how yours came out and would be interested to see how someone else approaches this art form.
