Here are some pics of an Alligator slab table I made for my garage. I inlayed some copper against black sand in a few areas to fill some voids and cracks. This was my first attempt at inlaying anything so still figuring some things out, things I could’ve done different, etc.. but overall happy with the project. The tables only purpose is to put stuff on… hunting gear and what not + it was a bit experimental. I’m sure it will get a bit beat up over time but someday I can sand down again re-finish it if necessary. Enjoy the pics and any advice or tips for future inlays is well received. I’ve done other projects with logs and slabs but first inlay..
