Trying my hand at some new techniques. Had an order for a cutting board with a Philadelphia Eagle inlay. I typically use my scroll saw for this but wanted to try this. Not perfect but definitely came out better than expected. My next one will surely impress. Customer was impressed so I guess that’s good. I want to invest in a CNC machine to do this in the future although that takes a little craftsmanship out of the picture. Comments welcome.

It definitely looks cool. Won’t the turquoise be hard on knives though?

Nice looking project. What did you use for the inlay?

Didn’t really think about that, guess we shall see. Plenty of room around eagle to use for cutting. :P

Looks nice, I’d be more worried about the knives cutting up the epoxy and it messing up. How did you inlay it? Mix the epoxy and stir in the rock then put it in the spot. Or put crushed rock in the hole then cover it in epoxy? I keep getting mixed results when I try to do inlay.

I actually put CA glue in the hole then covered it in crushed turquoise. I let that dry then layed another layer on top of that one then added thin CA glue and sanded to finish. May try turquoise sand the next time.
