Walnut Lamp #1: Inlays

09-18-2015 04:53 PM by BobFrankly | 1 comment »

This article comes partway through the project. I’ve completed the shaping on the base, and picked my pieces for the neck of the lamp. I’m doing some inlays for the sides of the neck, Orange Osage into the Walnut.I made the cuts on the table saw with a crosscut sled and a scrap piece of 2×4 braced against the sled fence to hold it in place. Card Scrapers made short work of any spots that were too wide as I tested the inlays above.Glue up was interesting, the thin end of th...

Rocking Horse #2: Inlays!

12-16-2007 05:18 AM by mot | 9 comments »

I got a couple of hours down in the shop tonight, so I did the inlays on the horse. I started by resawing some walnut that I had laying around left over from God knows what. I couldn’t use the GRRipper here, so no controversy tonight! I ran the pieces through the Performax to get them fairly close to size. I made a little router jig to route the grooves for the inlays.
