Coyote Track Inlay

I made another Rustic Bench.
This one, I inlaid a Walnut, Coyote track.
Am happy how this turned out.

Thanks.
Limbhanger, next Spring I'll inlay a Turkey track. I think that would look cool.
Done making benches, time to get ready for trapping & predator calling season.

Aught to do turkey tracks across the bench with yote or bobcat tracks following. I know inlay is hard to do. Maybe burning them in.
Nice bench

Thanks Jager. Used the tiny chisels, what a bugger.

First track I've done. Nephew stopped by and we all ready talked of Turkey or Deer tracks with Coyote track partially over prey track.
I make rustic benches for family & friends. Takes time adding inlays (but enjoyable).
This bench is for a friend that's done me some favors. The kind of guy that wont let you do anything for him. Well, he's getting a surprise...lol
Since he's a trapper, a Coyote track makes it special for him.

This is a DIY project. Just learning about inlays.
Any inlay advice appreciated. Always looking to improve.

You could make a template cutout of track and use small trim router with 1/8" bit and collar to make track insert and bench cutout. This is more of a production type thing and all would be the same tho. I have done some marquetry on small boxes ,butterfly type inserts for wood with cracks and it is tedious by hand. Most of them were one off deals so a template was not worth the extra effort.
