Cherry Burl Bangle with Turquoise inlay. I really like the color contrast between the Cherry Burl and the Turquoise. Finished with wipe on poly.

Pretty cherry burl bangle and the turquoise inlay created a great accent. Well done!

Hey John, This is pretty cool and consequently what I want to tackle next; turquoise inlay… or even raw diamond or abalone/mother of pearl. How did you to the inlay? I have watches a few you tubes on the process which don’t seem too hard but I’m wondering if you did the same and have perfected it at all or have any tips.

Thanks!

JR – I used Inlace for this, I like it the best out of all of the other products I have tried. Inlace will not shrink, which is a big plus. I purchase it at woodturnerscatalog.com.

It is a little tricky to place it on a round objects, but it sets up fairly quickly. I apply it and keep rotating the piece in my hand slowly.

I am going to try it on a Bangle core and a Ring core this weekend, well see how it turns out!

I will PM you a picture when complete, as I will not post it on here, as it will have no wood in it.

John
