  • Who's afraid of the big bad Inlay

    I'm really hoping to see some folks give inlay a try...
    It's really not so tough, once you try it...

    Here's a link to a great little tutorial...

    I'd love to see more this art form in our ranks.....

    hey Jim, thanks for putting this together.
    I'm one who wanted to learn how to do inlay but I'm already into a project right now but when I'm ready I'll be going back and re-reading everything and giving it a try....

    wasn't there going to be 2 sessions on inlay?

      Here are photos of just a few of my latest inlays in cedar. Endless number of images to use out there. Some require some minor carving on them and others do not.

            Hey Trout,
            I wasn't planning a second session, but I might be able to do something on reverse inlays...Let me think about it a bit...
            Don't want to overwhelm folks trying this out for the first time....

              Hi Trout - I'm afraid that I'm to blame for this one. Our friend Dave (Plaquerd) put together another set of photos and instructions for a really nice inlay for more experienced folk which I was going to knock into a tutorial after Jim's primer. I've had Dave's photos sitting in my laptop for way too long but with a change of home location, a new job and almost no spare time during the past three months I've not been able to get around to sorting things out but now that you have nudged my conscience I'll make a big effort to get back to it within the coming days.

                I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
