    First inlay bowl

    A few things went wrong with this when I was trying to work the base. There are a couple of good knots in the base that did a little catch thing and shot it across the bench. The rim and inlay was re-worked and then the bottom. Only one coat of Wipe-on Poly so far.
    The actual inlay process isn't that bad. Did a recess 1/4" below the rim for whatever reason. Silver maple 8x2.5. Hope it passes and thanks.

    That's a good looking bowl. I'd also like to know your method of holding the turquoise in place. Very nicely done.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Great looking bowl Jim. The inlay really sets it off.
