  • 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.

                          A gift to be cherished, and a reminder that life goes on despite a tragic loss. How lucky the little boy is to have such caring people in his life....

                          Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

                          Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...
