Love it Steve!
If you think you can or think you can't... you're likely right!
Nice inlay Steve!
Lauri stained these two today! One is a carpathian topped, birch mandola (one piece back) stained amber and red, the second is a sitka topped, birdseye maple A5 with a brown burst. These photos have a light seal coat on and need the binding scraped. Once she gets going with the finishing, the grain will pop a little more on that birdseye.
Max, those stains are striking!
Congrats to you and Lauri.
Final coats on Mark's octave, Elise's blackface a, and a golden mandola. My first mandola with red spruce top and vermont hard maple back.
This is consistently one of my favorite threads to visit. Wow!

What an elegant and tasteful beauty, nice work Rob!
agreed... looks very nice!
Some of this quilted maple is just outrageous. Like holograms in a perceived visual texture of a smooth flat surface. Always amazing wood and luthiery extraordinaire here.

Arnt, that is stunning, but everything I have ever seen you post here or at the MIMF has always looked wonderful even the a-style you built from the maple scraps of some home projects.
Very nice stuff, Arnt!
Can we hear them?
Sure, just come one over Oh I see, you mean soundfiles? Sorry, I'm not set up for it at the moment, I'm working on it tho...
