I’ve been commissioned to make a pen/pencil set as a gift for a young man who will receive his commission in the AF in May. I was also tasked with making a pen stand for his desk. I’ve already decided on using the current AF logo.
I plan on inlaying walnut to a maple board. I’ve never done inlay before and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? I’ve watched some YouTube videos on how to use a router to do inlay work.
Is there a type of veneer I should use? A certain thickness?
I’m feeling pretty confident about this project as the shapes are pretty basic.
Thanks for any suggestions.
