This is a custom board that I did for a client. He sent me an email stating he would like a Patch of his put on a board. After a bunch of research I decided to go the route of Epoxy and colored sand. This was the first Time I have done something like this. The process is a tad more time consuming then expected, Also epoxy is quite expensive. What I did first was stencil the patch to the board, after I routed it out freehand with a 1/16 and an 1/8 inch straight bit, then filled it with the epoxy and the sand. The board itself will be more for display, I told him one side is good for cutting and that the side with the sand would lead to dulled knives and most likely chipping of the patch. I made the board mainly out of mahogany. Let me know what you think and if you have any pointers when doing inlays with epoxy and sand.
