Lou Justin's Hardwood Floor Inlay

We're pleased to select Lou Justin of Holly, MI for our Wood Finishing Showcase. Lou's project is a decorative hardwood floor Inlay Medallion.

Dear Minwax,

My First project is a 25" floor medallion. I figured out a way to make "tessellated" free form tiles using custom router templates that I make in my shop. When I create project from a single wood species I usually stain and urethane. This projects I used Oak, Walnut, Cherry and Hard Maple. Therefore, I just decided to add a urethane finish and not mess with contrasting wood colors. I am really bad when it comes to final finish. I used Minwax Wipe On Poly! I think you should call it "urethane for dummies". I would have tried it sooner! It's the easiest and most foolproof urethane I ever used!
