inlaying veneers - 2 replies

I had a friend give me an idea for something, and this may be something like marquetry. when I make my trays, she suggested that I use a contrasting wood to inlay an initial into the flat part of the tray. The way I was thinking of doing it,...

But i’m lucky it was a lead round and not copper or steel jacketed. My planer left it pretty smooth, and didn’t damage my knives. I know the guy who owns the mill and he does run...
