The rings (p.13)

The final steps for my rosette ; inlay the wood strips into the inner and outer grooves.
I’m doing one side at a time since no real time saving, and giving me time to do the task and to verify. For this design, each side is having 3 sets of homemade purfling, and using the middle one to fine tune the overall fitting. If I’m using hide glue for most of the works, like inserting the previous center motif and the purfling built, I rather like the use of poly glue for these last inlay works, and plenty of open time as well.
