That’s some great timber you’ve got there. Finish is just right to show it off to the very best advantage.

Nice inlays Dusty. They add a lot of visual interest to the pieces.

Sweet! That cross grained tiger maple is really stunning. What is the base wood? Cherry, Bubinga?

Beautiful work!!! Could/would you post pictures of the process about making the the inlays themselves? And now another project on my unending list to master.

Nice craftsmanship Dusty, with such a fluid grain that maple almost looks like it is moving.
