African Blackwood Dust/Fossil Inlay

Here is another pair of a Ammonite inlays I completed this afternoon. They are a 1 3/4" African Blackwood base with a 1 1/2" Ammonite fossil and blood wood dust filler to compensate for the gaps. I think they turned out well. This is my second pair so far. I have 6 more pairs back ordered as of now. Needless to say, I am very excited on my work schedule the next few weeks. Any input on how to better this design would be appreciated.

Those are really cool! Forgive my naiveté, but where do those go? :)

Wow, sometimes its intimidating for us beginning turners to look at turning art. I was happy to make a good looking hollow donut recently. Beautiful work.
