« Part 2: Inlay... Part 3 of Mystery commission. series no next part

I used a spline cutting jig on the TS to cut kerfs in the mitres…. Used cedar for the splines…
I know I was lackadaisical in not cutting the splines… just broke off pieces,

This is what it looks like before I inlaid dots at the junctions of all the sets of nine…that is … the corners of the inner 9 spaces

I have inlaid the dots and rounded the corners…
Just have to apply a few coats of an oil finish…
And to put anyone who does not know what it is…out of their misery…

A Shogi Board… for playing Japanese Chess…

Looking good brother!

Question on the splines. Did you cut the frame down, the splines don’t seem to fill the joints. Just curious is all.

@ken, I’m guessing Larry is going to book match his miter splines now, is that right Larry? (Kidding on the book matching.) I’m sure he’ll just slide another spline up against that one to fill the void. Unless you look really hard, you probably won’t know that there are 2-splines there.

This is looking good Larry. I’m looking forward to seeing the final result.

Or if Larry is going to use a third species for the 4-circle inlays, he could use that same species to fill the outer part of the miter slots. That’d look interesting!

A shogy board? .. I’ve never heard about it. Was it the one you played with us and called “Guess What I Am Making”? Whatever, it is perfect job, Larry.
