Very very nice. The inletting work is just jaw-dropping.

And I can see the wood is going to darken up and pop the contrast very nicely. It's going to look amazing when its done.

Looking good Tony. Keep putting that oil on every day. You cannot over -do it. Rubbing in the finishing oil will lighten it later. The longer you keep putting on the red oil, the darker the figure will become, the lighter wood will remain lighter but contrast will get better.

Just use linseed oil and get some alkanet root dried in rough chips or whatever form you can Spice world sells it on the internet. Fill a jar almost to the top with root, pour on oil to cover, put the top on and leave it for as long as you can. Shake or turn it every few days to begin with. The oil will go blood red.

Do you scrape off the black marks left after the final inletting, or do you have a solvent that removes the marks ?

Gunman, thanks, Lee Butler and his team have set me up with their stuff so I'm trying it all.

Daryll nope. Leave all that no need to fiddle and start scratching the wood.

Here are some pictures first after 3 coats and me putting some more on!

Tony, it looks great. And it is much appreciated that you not only show us what you do, but that you also tell us how you do it.
