So while this is a finished project, I think it has more value as an inlay how-to.
The ease for adding the copper wire inlay was a surprise to me!
I just routed some free hand groves with a v-bit and then inlaid the copper wire. I glued it down with CA, hit it with accelerator and then sanded it flush.
All total it was under and hour in the shop, and that was with some expiermenting. I love the look but more than that I’m really excited about the possibilities! Add a template to this and you’ve got yourself a stunning box lid in with very little labor!
Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking!
