Continuing routing the inlets for the cribbage board…

Finishing the routing freehand

After using the fence and clamps to route to the edges of the inlets I finish routing out each segement freehand.

Finishing the curved custs

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.

Chiseling out the edges

I use a micro chisel to clean out the edges of the curves.

Cutting the corners

The same chisel is used to square the corners where the routing left an arc.

My next entry: the inlay work…
