Just finished up this stone inlay of a brook trout. After spending quite a few years in Idaho and Montana doing fish research in high mountain lakes and streams I’m kind of a fish dork – so I wanted to get this as close to accurate as possible.
I included a pic of the piece when I had finished routering (inletting? – not sure what the right word to use here is) the design into the wood but before I started adding stone. I really only use a router for removing the biggest chunks of wood. My primary tool is a Foredom Micro Motor running end mills (because they get tiny enough for the fine details I’m doing).
