Here’s the end grain shot of Cherry and Maple Bench. To make the inlay I used my thin rip jig to rip three strips of Maple 1/12” thick for each inlay. i made a curved template out of 3/16” plywood, and followed the template using a Rockler guide bushing and a 1/4” router bit, set 1/8” deep, making two passes, with the second pass 1/4” deep. Then I used my jig saw (I really need to buy a band saw) and cut the board in two down the middle of the routed groove. Using a pattern bit to clean up both edges, I effectively removed 1/4” of material. Then I glued up the three of the thin strips and the two halves, aligned them and clamped them, allowing the glue to dry for 24 hours. Flip the template upside down and repeat for the second curved strip.

Hi John, Thanks for the nice comments. I’m still trying to get this whole Lumberjocks photo publishing thing figured out. I’ll try another photo group of detailed shots of the different components.

i hope this helps.

Very nice! I add six pictures when I post, haven’t learned to add them below though, so you are ahead of me there.
