    Well done, Jeff. A word that I don't think I've ever used on this forum to describe a piece of work before is awesome. It's so often used inappropriately.

    I feel that what you've done with Aries is awesome.

    most impressive

    WowJeff, very very impressive... especially for a beginner.

    I knew you'd be able to pull it off, had no doubt what so ever!

    Thank you for participating in the Aries Challenge. You make our designs look great!

    Take care
    Toni

    Wow if that's your first attempt what are you going to produce when you get good? That's a beautiful piece of work, Jeff - it really shows off Sue and Toni's design.

    I love that little animation too ..lol

    I finished this bowl/plate with the aries design inlaid into it. This was my first time trying to inlay and first time ever turning too. It was a challenge and a nice break from doing intarsia's. It's not perfect, but I think it's pretty good for a double first timer. The bowl is Pecan with a pecan/bloodwood segmented ring. 20 pieces at 1 1/2 width by 8 degrees. The entire project is 9 1/2 diameter. There's alot more sanding involved in turning an object than there is in intarsia, that I found out for sure...probably close to 10 times more sanding. Runs from 80 grit through 400 grit. Still needs a couple more coats of finish, I'm just using a wipe on poly on this.

    part 1 done

    This is the aries glued up and inlaid into the bottom of the plate. This was the easy part. I have to plane it down without it exploding, mount a bottom and build a 20 pc segmented frame around it, then mount it to the lathe and turn it into a plate.

    but I'm out of time till at least wednesday...have to go to bed, then back to trucking.

    I am a very beginner and have taken the challenge. I am thinking out my plan for now and will decide everything before I cut. I don't think the tight corners are the problems. LOL
