First Inlay Attempt

Postby KLWestfall » Wed Mar 16, 2016 1:46 pm

This is my first inlay attempt using a piece of scrap oak with a walnut inlay.

Used Aspire's V-Carve method and am pretty happy.

Friend wants a crib board wit the inlay so I'm feeling a bit more confident about pulling it off. :shock:

Wiped it with Natural Danish Oil.

Excellent Job!
Now my wife will be wanting me to do a hummingbird for her since that is her favorite.
It is what it is!
Have a great day.

Looks good!

Just a hint to consider when making your next one: Have the grain direction of the inlay run the same direction of the background wood. Less chance of humidity expansion/contraction conflicts leading to pieces popping out. ;)

Looks awesome. So the cnc cut the pocket and then cut out the pieces to fit on the pocket? How well did they fit?

Google D07 V-Carve and the video will explain it better than I can. But they are both cut with a 60 Deg bit, so with a taper on both pieces, they went together pretty good.

I had wondered about the grain, but I saw someplace that opposing grain would make it stand out better. Time will tell - it was just a practice piece.

So this was what I was practicing for. Recipient loved it, so I guess it's OK!

10.5 by 16.5 Walnut with Maple inlay. Flower was carved with a 30 Deg V Bit and then painted and then sanded.

I can see the mistakes, but then that doesn't matter!

I think there will be more inlay in the future... :lol:

Vetric's V Carve method.
