Sharing some pictures from readers.

The concentric circle vase pattern has been very popular. The first two pictures are from Roger. As you can see in the second pic he made several. He took the pattern and made some changes which look great but I don't envy all the sanding he has ahead of him.

The next two projects are from John. This is some beautiful work. He made the frame in the mallard portrait. I really like the frame and oval mat. Nice work John.

The next two are from Eltee. Look at the decorative painting on this vase. The second picture is Eltee's 3d cutting jig.

The last picture is a another set of vases from Conrad. Check out how he lined up the grain pattern in the larger vase. The smaller vase required him to recalculate the angle of cut for the shorter rings. He also added a foot to the pattern. Looks good to me.

Thanks for sharing all your work with everyone. I love getting pictures in my email. If any of you want to share your work send it on. I'll post as many of them as I can.

Poker Table Coasters

Poker is one of the fastest growing games in the world. It's on television and the internet. There are thousands of Friday night poker games in homes and poker clubs.

This coaster set is easy to make using the bevel inlay technique I demonstrated in the last video post. If you need instructions watch the Round Box Inlay video tutorial on this blog.

The coasters are 1/4" walnut and the inlay is 1/4" maple. I used self sticking green felt on the bottom of each coaster. The holder is made from 1/2" walnut and two walnut 1/4" dowel rods. You can adjust the length of the dowels if you wish to make 8 coaster instead of four.

Make sure you give the coaster several coats of lacquer to protect them from the moister.

This has been a crazy week. I have had so much going on that I have neglected the blog and my emails. I know many of you are waiting for a reply to email. I will get caught up soon Be patient with me I'm not trying to ignore anyone.
