  • Angle of cut?

    Is there a "rule-of-thumb" on the angle of cut for different thicknesses of wood? It says in the challange that 2-3 degrees was chosen but, said may differ for different thickness of wood. Should both (or all) peices be smae thickness?

    An old beginner leaping in.

    Pleased with my new EX-16.

    I'm no expert but you will have to try several different angles to get the inlay to lay down smoothly. The thickness of the wood will dictate the bevel/angle.

      To be clear...Only the Top piece of the stack matters. Once you have the angle for that, you can inlay thicker or thinner pieces. And sand the back accordingly....

      Hey I said I was no expert....LOL
      You're funny Mike...

        My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

        Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
