« Part 21: Run Forest! Part 22 of Shop Remodel series Part 23: Look Boss, De Plane »

I felt like embellishing the doors a bit so today I milled up some leopard wood and made some fall leaves to inlay into the doors. I used a router bit used for a CNC that was 1/16” thick at the end to get into the tight spots and a 3/16” bit for the rest. I cut out the design and taped them in place to see if I liked it. I then traced out the leaves and routed out a recess for them and glued them in place. I then made a stem and did the process again. I finished them off with a few little indications of veins. Not a lot done today, I am really slow at inlays, but I was happy with the result.

I hope you all have a great weekend and have fun woodworking.

Wow, just those few leaves really jazzes it up!

May I ask a detail? Did you trace with a knife, or a sharp pencil?

I started out tracing them out with my hacksaw blade knife and an x-acto knife, but I kept over scribing a bit so I switched to a sharp pencil and liked it better.
