Added some copper wire as an inlay. Thought it went well with the colors.

Looks great. I tried super-gluing brass wire onto an Elm bowl during the week but had no joy.
The glue just seemed to soak into the wood before it held any wire.
I’m going to try spotting glue around the groove and letting it harden for a while
before I take another shot at it.

I’m interested in hearing what way you did it.

Rgds,
Murch.

Murch- Thanks for the compliment! I originally ran into the same issue as you did while trying to apply the wire. I ended up getting a CA with a thicker viscocity and clamped the wire around the entire bowl with spring clamps and using wax paper to protect the clamps from the glue. It took a little while to finally dry (amazing how fast it will cause your fingers to stick together though!). When it finally did, I sanded it on the lathe. Just be careful sanding!.... Do it at a slowww speed, as the CA with break loose with too much heat!

Thanks for the reply. I have a few spring clamps lying around that might prove useful here.
