« Part 1: Project 001: Z Touch Plate Holder Part 2 of 21st Century Woodworking series no next part

I saw AppJourneyman making very impressive inlay banding. I thought I would give it a try on my CNC Router. I had some scrap laying around and thought I would give it a try. It came out very good.

Go over to 21st Century Woodworking for project cut files and details.

That is a great idea. I don’t have a CNC router but might try to rig something to make those cuts with my microfence.

@ StumpyNubs:

Thanks… i built it from a kit from CNC Router Parts. It took me about 2 months working after hours to get it to this point. I like it a lot.

P.S. I love your youtube videos.

@Julian,

If your fence can index, you could probably do the same thing by carefully setting up your table saw or router. I have an incra fence system on my dads table saw/router table. Setting that should work ok. However, it could be a royal pain to have to move all the time. Be better if you were making like 10 of them at a time or something.

Nice!

Looks like a CNCRP machine (the red risers are a dead give away).

What glue did you use for the hold-down?

It wasn’t clear if the bit was a V groove bit. I’m assuming yes, but I am not sure.

Thanks brtech!

I used that double sided carpet tape (fiberglass tape) to hold the work down to the surface while milling. It works well, but scraping the residue off is a bit of a pain.

The glue I used was just plain yellow wood glue (PVA).

Yes, the bit was a V Groove bit. The amana In Design bits will work much better, I think. They will give very tight corners. The Magnate 90 degree bit has a slight round to it.
