That is a beautiful bench and an excellent combination of materials. The inlay adds a lot of visual interest to the piece.

Thanks for the post.

Great bench, cool design! Looks like the inlays might of taken a while to do. Thanks for the pic showing the process you used for the inlays.

Are the inlays hand cut?? Very cool that you can program that to just happen. Great look and design.

congratulations, Ellen

Superb job on that inlay. I know how tough it is to do repeat work without errors creeping in!
