Inlay Wood...Wolf's Tooth...Custom Inlay Banding

The “Wolf’s Tooth” decorative wood inlay pattern is a wonderful custom inlay used to embellish furniture, picture frames, wooden boxes, and a host of other woodworking projects. The wooden segments (teeth) were cut on the table saw equipped with a Forrest Woodworker II 40 tooth saw blade. Also, the dedicated miter sled was used in order to maintain precision and to create uniform triangular segments which make up the “teeth” of this hardwood inlay banding. White glue is used instead of yellow glue to allow a greater working time when assembling the segments into position within the banding “sandwich.” Veneer inlays called “bandings” will be sliced on the band saw at about 3/32”. The bandings will eventually be fit and let into a plough or dado of the wood project to be decorated.

Great little tutorial lessons you post Bob ;-)

I like that quote from Aristotle.
