I tried a wire fillet in this one. I would suggest if you use a colored wire that you do this last due to sanding the color off the wire. Still looks okay copper, but blue would have been much nicer. Live and learn.

Thank you for looking

Peter, I initially saw a guy do this by taking the wire and burning it in on the lathe. I just cut a groove with the cutoff tool and drilled a very small hole to start the wire which I get in 12 colors. Then I just CA glue it in. The last couple inches require you to stand there till the glue is stronger than the tension in the wire. This wire was blue till I got to sanding. I made one mistake and had to sand the entire wire down.I think I’ll cut the groove and wait till last thing to glue on the wire, and I’d use medium CA to keep it neat. Thin runs too much.
