  • 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...

        Most of the cut outs were done with the scroll saw.
        Karl I have a couple of power carvers. The classic Dremel with a flex shaft I then bought a Ram Power carver, they both use 1/8 shank bits. I have a bunch of carbide cutters from when our Printed circuit board facility at work was dismantled....

        I totally missed this, but what a great tool and I'm very excited for you. I was thinking it would great for puzzle boxes where the scroll saw boxes are limited to about 2 inches, this would take them on up to another level.

        The blade cost would be a concern if they dulled quickly, so...
