    Are you ready for this months challenge?

    For this challenge I am looking for a project made from any type of wood that includes an inlay. The inlay must be something other than wood.

    Have your project picture posted in this thread by 6pm EST October 29th. Describe your process of how you achieved the inlay of your project description. Once all entries are in I will created the poll and everyone will have 72 hours to vote for the big kahuna :zuludrummer:

    Dust off those :saw: and get cracking :nodice:

    Ok, I’ll post the first project...

    This is a chalice made from Crape Myrtle that my son gave me from a retreat he went to last spring break in North Carolina. The inlay material is twist copper wire, I wanted to achieve a rope-like effect. The crack was filled with coffee grounds and it is finished with teak oil and bees wax.

    Okay, here's my humble piece. I got several of these glass pieces from @rocky1 awhile back and finally got around to doing something with one. Soft Maple with a butterfly inlay. Thanks Rock! Tony
