More messing around with mixing sand colors together for practicing inlays.
This weekends fun is with Black and Yellow !
The light yellow seemed a very subdued, almost in the white category. The dark yelow was a winner
I started making a rim for it out of sand but it was getting too long/deep and I had to cut it back and drop the sand rim in order to finish the inside. Turning the inside was difficult, I was stretching the limit of my tools.
I blew it off with air before waxing and polishing but the red from this wood is almiost like a stain and any little cracks or chips in the sand inlay picked up the red discolored wax. I think I will need an extra coat or two of CA, sanded lightly, on the inlays next time if I use this wood again
I cant remember if this piece was Bloodwood or Padauk ... Judging by the look of my white t-shirt after I was done, it looks like I just came from a car accident , so I am guessing Bloodwood :)
