I made this bowl out of poplar and inlaid crushed obsidian and copper. It is my first project using an inlay accent.

Looks fantastic!
The inlay turned out really great.
The poplar has some interesting tones to it too.

Very artistic work. That poplar never looked so good.

Thanks! No stain, sanded to 1500 then used “shine juice” which is equal parts denatured alcohol, shellac and boiled linseed oil. Then steel wool and paste wax.
