Excellent inlay Dale. The cross itself is wonderful, but the veneers really set the contrast nicely. A great enhancement from other cross designs.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm not real good at explanations but I have a couple photos that should help.
You need 2 blanks the same size to make this. The veneers need to have the grain across the blank so that it will bend. After it's clamped drizzle thin CA in all the cracks and let dry (or accelerator). These pix were from a different pen with a double cross process is the same.
