    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

    This is not recent stuff, but maybe we can get this thread going again, the first is a piece of desert ironwood with malachite and abalone. I bought some 1/2" square malachite beads from a jewelry place, made a little dremel jig and split them in half to make 2 inlay tiles. I had a few abalone shells, and used one to cut out those pieces, a ton of work, that stuff is hard! it's about 9" diameter

    Next is some bangles I was making for a while, turned out to be way too much work to make any money from.... used various stone beads for inlay on these too, and some with copper...

    I'm hoping to get something done by the end of the month. I have some time into this but not enough hours in the day.

    Finally was able to finish enough to photograph. Planning on another coat of oil and wax. This is a keepsake box with an inlaid lizard skin that I got here on a trade with @samupton. The box is curly apple from a tree I cut down and milled about 5 years ago. A recess was routered out of the lid using a home made template. The lizard hide was glued to 1/8" plywood and set in. I really liked the look of the hide with the unfinished apple. Once I put oil on the apple, I don't like it as much due to the color change in the wood. Thanks for the challenge. Been meaning to try this for a couple years!

    That is great John! I remember when he offered those skins, I wanted to get some but couldn't figure out what I would do with them. I wish I had come up with this, very nice! Tony
