  • 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?

    Thanks,

    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...
