    Another Ringnecked Pheasant

    Laser cut inlay using a piece of Curly Maple for the barrel, Red Dyed Spalted Maple, Green Dyed Basswood and Box Elder Burl. Brass tube is painted black and pieces anchored with Thin CA.
    Turned, sand with 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Oil Modified Water Based Polyurethane.
    I like this one better than the first one I did with the lighter colored Curly Maple.

    Thanks guys.

    Larry,

    Sometimes Ken's quality control is not that great and the brass tube can been seen in places.
