We have a wedding coming up in November of very dear, very long time friends’ daughter. I have been wanting do to a little more with inlays so I made this. Some may recognize this as an MTM design. I did get the bride and groom design from Andrei. However lest anyone think all I do is copy, there was a lot of work to do. When his file comes over it has the names of his bride and groom attached and all the toolpaths use some weird ass european router bits. So the design needs to be done from scratch in Aspire, plus a maple and a walnut cutting board need to be made. I recently picked up one of those cheap Harbor Freight hydraulic presses for the inlay work. So now the matching of the two pieces is much easier. My only complaint is that the maple had a lot of those mineral streaks in it. Unfortunately I didn’t realize how bad until I was too far into it. Pretty sure the bride and groom won’t mind.

Jim,
I’m sure they will like this.
As for all the work on your part, I thought you just pushed the ‘start, button on your CNC and the machine did all the work? Maybe you need an upgrade.

Is that how it’s supposed to work? I knew I was doing something wrong.

This is a very nice looking piece… and having done CAM myself, I get how much stinkin’ work it can be.
