  • 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.

                          New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

                          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

                          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
