Segments of a custom inlay.

As we near the holidays it’s time to start planning ahead for gifts that will be made in the woodworking shop. In the picture you can see many wood segments that have been cut on the dedicated miter sled for the table saw. It’s quite important that the angles of the segments are consistent so that they line up tightly within the decorative wood pattern. However, this job is quite easy to accomplish with the miter sled and a stop block. This particular pattern is referred to as “Wolf’s Tooth” according to page 136 of Pierre Ramond’s tremendous book, Marquetry. These segments will be glued together and sandwiched between two laminated strips of of holly and walnut. This “wood sandwich” will wind up being sliced on the band saw and the strips will become known as wood inlay bandings.
