  • Wall hung inlay, Wedding couple

    This is a wall hung plaque that was ordered last week. 16" tall 3/8" cedar with maple inlay. Letters are Mesquite. The angel was a bit tricky to to but I did get it on the first try. I put the lettering inside the smaller heart so that while cutting it I did not have to swing the larger heart all around to cut the letters.

      What size of blade do you use to make those very sharp (V) cuts? I haven't done enough inlay to anywere near come close to your fine work. Great pattern.

                  Making the sharp "V" cuts is a problem. I work on perfecting it but they do not come out as planned sometimes. I use a #5 blade on my inlays. When cutting them I am cutting through 3/4" of wood so a lower numbered blade may not work well.

                            Sadly, after I get what I want the rest will be next winters firewood for my son. I might even convince Bruce to take 2 logs to the sawmill he volunteers at and slice some. Hmmm.

                            Well, you read my mind! I’m going to make the happy birthday out of a piece of thin wood and paint it her favorite color using the sparkling green unicorn spit. Mainly because if I mess it up I won’t ruin the basket. Sam is turning 11 and I don’t think the happy birthday will bother her. But it’s...

                            That looks like it will be beautiful when done!
                            What finish are you using? I have success with a spray glue if it is not an oil based finish.

                            One suggestion I've done is instead of cutting the Happy Birthday as part of the main piece, cut it from thin / contrasting wood and make it...

                            Thanks guys - both sites seem to have a much broader catalog range than clockparts.com and i am sure I'll find what I need from one of them.

                            Appreciate the help ...
