Topic tags/keywords: stain bleed inlay question box lid

Hey guys, looking for some help here. I have an oak box lid that I stained with a Jacobean color. I want to put some carved pieces of pine as inlay. I’m assuming I have to seal the pine in some way before putting it in the channels I carved in the lid? I’m worried that when I put the poly on it will cause the dark stain to bleed into the light colored pine.

Any tips would be helpful!

Poly the Stained & the Inlay Seperate, then Assemble& add more poly if you wish to blend.

I have put Varnish on the Inlay before then Varnish the rest of the Project you can Still get some Bleed, the Black on this Project Kept wanting to turn the red Black.
