My first post here. I wanted something to challenge me in a few new areas as I’ve never done inlay before. Took a few months, and lots of searching to find a single piece of mahogany that was wide enough for the top. I mostly used hand tools. The top was done totally by hand. The bridal joint as well. It was fun to make.
