You may have noticed some of my projects are veneer inlay enhancedThe inlays I use are mostly made by myself, for the more complex medallion’s and the likes they are store bought.

Part 2: Another glue up

I set to work with some off cuts of Purple heart and Pine this time. I made two individual sets, one set having Purple heart in the middle and the second the purple heart was on the outsides.

Part 6: sras Flooring Tribute Take 2
