Continuing routing the inlets for the cribbage board…
After using the fence and clamps to route to the edges of the inlets I finish routing out each segement freehand.
I previously scribed the curved segments with a compass and now I carefully cut around the curves with a knife. This is not a common X-Acto which would break immedietly on the ebony, but a hardened steel surgical blade I purchased from Micro-Mark.
I use a micro chisel to clean out the edges of the curves.
The same chisel is used to square the corners where the routing left an arc.
My next entry: the inlay work…
