Sorry, no pictures on this one. I know that is a “no no” in blogs, but I just need a quick answer and I’ll get some more pics on this week yet.
I have most of the crib finished and hope to complete it this weekend. I have put off what i consider the most challenging part until then end. Not that i am afraid of a challenge, just would hate to mess up this piece.
On the back (longest side opposite of the sliding gate) I have a piece of walnut. It starts out at the legs at 4” high and arches up in the middle to around 9” I think. I would like to inlay our name into this piece. I plan on using sycamore to match the slats.
My question is, how thick should i make the inlay? I plan on using a combination of router and hand tools to cut out the walnut and sycamore. How deep into the walnut should I cut?
