  • 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.

                Farmers market "survey"
                by Linda In Phoenix
                Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                I like the fact...

                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
