Well, the client who hired us to do some grain-contrasted inlay using that beautiful piece of sycamore has given us permission to show some of the resulting inlay right here on our Toylog.  Without further ado...
It's really turned out so beautifully, I love to look at it.  Every single one of those circles is as close to perfect as my eye can distinguish, with no visible glueline... and that's 430 circles!  Getting the tone to match was a struggle, so I made extras in order to be certain he would have enough to work with.
All the circles are quartersawn, and all the substrate is plainsawn.  These will be part of the decorative trim on a pair of desks that are a part of a very fancy railcar restoration project.
