Dis vrek mooi, bly jy is ook nou hier op. Nou kan ek meer van jou werk sien.

-- Create, create, create create. It makes my blood flow. And what better material to use than wood, you can repeat the same object 1000 times and none will look the same in natural form.

Thanks. Yes I made the blanks. First turned the blank round, drilled a 7mm hole through on the lathe and then drill 7mm and 10mm holes into the blanks. Each inlay was turned seperately and glued. Then back on the I drill the correct size hole for the tube.
