Love the additives, just finishes it off beautifully.

Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Beautiful! Did you use epoxy, CA or something else for the inlay? I assume the copper and brass was a from powder?

-- Nathan, TX -- Hire the lazy man. He may not do as much work but that's because he will find a better way.

I used 2 part 5 min epoxy to fill the biggest part of the void. I had mixed copper powder with it and the copper powder turned black. After sanding it back I still had voids so I went back and filled with ca and brass powder and copper powder . Hope this helos
