  • Inlay ornaments

    While cutting the ducks for the inlay challenge, I also made these. Don't look too close - you can see the drill holes on the circles especially. I need to get a different drill bit - one is too small and this one was too big.

    Nicely done. Somebody has been infected with a new bug.....The inlay bug seems to be going around.

        Really pretty, Theresa. I especially like your trees.

        And Jim, you have really started a major trend!

          Thanks everyone!
          Mike - I've been cutting inlay for a few years now (but don't tell Jim - he might not let me post in the challenge. lol )

          Jim - LOL I don't think these will make me famous or rich. I do hope to sell a few this weekend tho. I really am glad that I found a place near me (75 miles away) that sells the exotic woods. I was in a woodcraft store last weekend and got sticker shock over their prices. Didn't realize how good I had it at the other store!

          Carole - thanks. They are a favorite of mine too.

                    Sweet cuts!!! Are the 'stars' on the trees inlaid or cut-out with a backer? I like the design for both! You keep posting photos and I might get brave enough to try some inlay - lol!

                    Please let us know how you do this festival season...I'm getting ready for the big one in three weeks and nervous with this economy! Still up in the air what to make and take! Good Luck!!!

                      Thanks everyone.
                      Kim - the stars are just cut with spiral blades. No backer on it, just open frets. You should give inlay a try. Jims' tutorial is a good way to start.

                          is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

                          When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                          I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
