  • 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.

                Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

                For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.

                A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
