I came home fully planning on getting this lid together and cut for the new threaded desk valet. Weeeellllll lets just say it didn't happen.
I did manage to lay up the lid parts the walnut and oak, not the inlay yet as I haven't decided on color.
Its still not sanded but the threads did turn out really nice.
Gives you perspective on size.
8-1/4 inch square blocks.
Black walnut will make up the bottom of the lid for contrast with the oak at the top. The inlay will be a redder color with radiused top. The glue took forever to dry tonight for some reason. Oh well tomorrow I will get the lid cut inside and out, threaded and inlay installed.
