maple with Purple Heart inserts *PIC*

John Lucas
>This is a piece I finished this weekend. It still needs a few coats of minwax wipe on poly. I won the wood of the month at our local club. When you win that you get the piece that someone else turned plus a piece of wood. I got a great beaded bowl from Teresa Paar and piece of Maple. I turned this from the maple so someone else will win that next month.

I used my new index system and routed 90 degree grooves. then glued in the purple heart and turned it. I had to custom grind the router bit because all of the 90 degree router bits I could find were actually somewhere around 87 degrees, interesting.
