That is Sexy! I am both jealous and plotting to steal it for my 1928 Craftsman.

Must be a little scary cutting up your floor for something you hope will work.
Anything special used to glue it down under heavy foot traffic??
Kinda different.

I like it…..................

Well to do the inlay I used double sided tape to stick the brass to the floor and traced it out with a marking knife, and used chalk to make the line visible. and hogged it out and traced the lines with an 1/8 spiral bit and magnifying glasses with the lights on them from harbor freight. I chiseled out what was left in the corners that the bit couldn’t get to. The brass is 5/16ths thick and I glued it in place with jb weld. And I have done tons of inlay work and I never use templates so it wasn’t that scary lol it’s all about the prep. I like doing inlay because I charge a lot for it and you get the oohs and aahs from it as well.
