Also, Al, thanks for addressing the issue of blowout of the inlaid wood. My first stab at these joint resulted in the same thing. I’ve used them a few times and still will get the occasional ruined joint. The tip using the tenoning jig is a great one. It’s a good idea, I think, if one makes many of these joints that they at least make a tenoning jig for safety. Great video series.

Thanks Al.

I am in awe of the work LBs and others are doing. In my view inlays are synomous with delicacy in wood working. Thanks for giving me a view into how it is done and just how delicate this work is. I really appreciate you leaving in the “blow out”. It just speaks to things not always going perfectly, but also allow me to see how you were able to redo the work with little loss in material.

Great video.

Al – I am so far away from doing this type of work, but I have watched your series with interest. I’ve picked up a few things along the way and have enjoyed watching you make wood work this beautifully.

I look forward to furture videos from you.

Thanks, Charles and Betsy!

I am just now getting back in here, after finishing my latest: Designing and building a bread box, as a Christmas gift for our daughter. You can view two short videos: The first, 33 seconds, on the features of the box, and the second, 10-minute 17 seconds, on the “build”, or design phase I went through using a computer program.

Thanks again, friends!
