I made a template… the design didn't turn out as I had planned. First attempt though. No need to beat myself up over it. It still looks nice.

This actually came out nice! These are hard to make. The inlay goes all the way through both sides and was made similar to this one. Lots of routing, bandsawing, gluing, and hand planing.

One of these days i'll be able to make something in the shop again :)

This came out great. I like the detail the dowels give. Not to take anything away, but would that be considered inlay since it goes all the way through? Is this more about laminating?

Ask my husband. I just make stuff. I don't know the lingo.

Very impressive to make the "top three". It doesn't matter if it didn't come out the way you planned, it just makes it unique. Look forward to see more. We don't live that far from each other, I live in Palmer.

Chuck, the process is far more similar to inlay than it is to lamination. I would consider it a hybrid of both

Thanks! I don't know if I'll be making another one anytime soon. joe is far better at making those than I am and it's way too frustrating for me.

I understand the frustration part. It's good to try new things now and then. Sometimes just so you can say "There, I did it." ;-)
