  • 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.

                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
