My attempt to inlay glass. I didn’t know how to do that, so I was trying to figure out / learn how to do that. Not an easy thing (at least for me)... It didn’t turn out as good as I hoped, but it’s not too bad.
Wood is oak (the only wood I had at home). Finish is wipe-on-poly.

Maybe you can give me an advice how to make a precise cut for inlaying glass, which tool is better to use?

I like it. I imagine getting the depth just right is difficult, as sanding the glass flush doesn’t seem possible.
I for one would like to know your methods.

FredK, I did sand it flush :). It was the only way to go… But at the end it turned out not bad.

Dusty, it’s my own idea. I have a bigger idea with combining glass and wood, but before I can make it, I have to practice with something more simple.

I think you did a fabulous job. Did you have to make templates for the inlay part?

Thank you longboader!
No, I didn’t make any templates. I cut glass and then just traced it with pensile on oak and then used dremel tool to cut it out. I’m sure it’s not the perfect way, but I didn’t know any other way.

Have your say...
