This year my mother said that for Christmas all she wanted was coasters, so I was thinking I was getting off real easy! Not exactly, she decided she wanted them all inlayed with the same grape emblem. Since they live in a very wine-centric area the overall theme was meant to be off the vine.
I picked the Walnut because I think it has a beautiful sapwood wave running through the top of it. The grapes are done with a maple and the leafs are zebra wood that has been sandshaded (thank you to “the woodwhisperer”), after watching his tutorial on it I am just looking for ways to use it in my inlays. To spice up the holder I sliced corks from some wineries around the areas and Inlayed them in the sides.
Thanks for looking and criticism is always welcome!
