Woodworking tip, learn how to make metal inlay using solder and a soldering iron, I used the Inventables X Carve CNC to carve Superman’s logo you can also use hand tools or a Dremel tool to carve and shape for this woodworking technique.
Read the full article and watch the YouTube video here http://www.onewood.com.au/solder-metal-inlay-woodworking-project/
Start by using the X Carve CNC from inventables to carve out the Superman logo in the wood to a depth of about 3mm.
Using a blow torch melt the solder over the wood so it fills the cut, the wood with solder inlay is then taken to the belt sander where its sanded until the solder is flush with the wood, if there are any holes or gaps you can use a soldering iron to fill them.
To finish the piece, use the blowtorch to burn the wood for a really great looking effect.
