I stared getting into crushed stone or chip inlaying. Another way to add ” bling ” to my creations. It`s a bit tricking doing it in my slides but on flat pieces it`s awesome! The black snake fretboard is actually Anthracite coal inlayed into Ironwood. The rest are Turquoise inlays. Still discovering the different colored grits available through the online store that I use. Its not a hard process, just time consuming. Thx for looking…Randy

Nice! Are you using epoxy to hold the crushed stone in?

Nice job! Do you use carving tools or a router to make the cavity for the inlay?

I freehand the cavity with a Dremel carving bit. Doing the flat surfaces was easy compared to doing the slide tops. So scared I was going to go through the wood. I had to do the inlay work after the slide was finished.
