  • Inlay?

    I cut vine lines in frist then did the inlay.As you can see it's not as tight as I would like it.Should I have cut the outline for the inlay frist then cut the vine lines then guled it up? Or do the inlay then would burn the lines I want? Thank for any help,Lance

    A little glue rubbed into the gaps and then sand the piece flat( while the glue is still wet). The sawdust will get sucked into the glue and the gap won't be as noticable. I think cutting the veins at the same time as the inlay in this case is fine.

      Another way to fill those small gaps is to mix sawdust (powder from orbital sander) with sanding sealer and rub it in and let dry and sand off the excess. This has the advantage of : if you miss sanding some of it off it will not show up when you finish it, like glue will.

        Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

        Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

        Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
