I definitely had fun with this one. First time carving out an inlay spot. Chose a very difficult material to do it with... Horn doesn't carve very well Wink some very minor delamination around the edges of the inlay, but, all in all, it turned out fantastic I think.

The MOP is genuine - the pictures really do not capture the light greens/purples/etc hues that are visible in it when held up to the light. The flush pinning is done with standard 1/16" nickel silver rod. The wedge is natural cow bone.
