Well, I have done it now – I just posted on my blog ( http://blog.sandal-woods.com ) Parts 1 and 2 of a video tutorial on how to make inlaid dovetails using the Leigh D4 jig. I used sycamore as the primary wood, and walnut as the accent inlays.
Part 1 is The Basics: General preparation, Intro, How to adjust the fingers on the D4 to allow the inlays of specific thickness.
Part 2 is the actual cutting of the tails and pins, to the point of gluing the walnut to the sycamore.
Part 3 (later this week, I hope…) will cover cutting the pin sockets on the walnut, leaving the walnut inlays.
Leave me a Comment at the blog, and let me know how you like the tutorial. Enjoy!
