Topic tags/keywords: resource router wood inlays

This is something I’ve had on my list of things to buy, for a long time now.

After reading Karson’s blog, showing how he did the inlays in his frame,

I thought this would be of interest to you Lumberjocks.

It looks kind of handy.

I have been using this type of inlay kit for quite some time and I can highly reccomend it. I find it invaluable for repairing splits and knots in boards, especially for table tops. well worth having in your arsenal of tools, I tend to make my own inlay patters though.

I’ve got one of these sitting in the tool box waiting to be used. Mine didn’t come with the bit, so I’ve planning to order one. But every time I place an order somewhere, I forget about needing this bit.

After reading this thread on her computer, Barb came downstairs,

& insisted that I order this set right now! for my birthday next week.

This set happens to be on special now.

She didn’t have to say it twice, the order is on it’s way.

You know I bought that set about 7 years ago, and I keep forgetting I have it. So far I have never used.

I have to get it out so that it’s in my view all the time.

I got a similar set from CMT a while back. Same spiral bit and guide and such. Pretty fool proof way to amp up a project. My scroll saw sees more use now when I make templates for the set. Think it was in the $30 range.

Well, you got me! I ordered the kit after I saw the price. Now I need to get my scroll saw working so I can make templates. Thanks for the heads-up!

I guess we all have tools we don’t use. I have this set, and it has been used, but I really liked the unit Karson showed us.

My Liegh Dovetail jig rarely gets used, as it seems my drawers are curved fairly often. But it’s nice to know it’s there.

Thanks Dick. I am one of those who has had one for about two years. I haven’t used it yet. I got mine because of a David Marks episode of Woodworks.

Some days I feel like I am a sheep, I have been looking at this for a while also. I just purchased it also :) I am sure my wife will be so please NOT! She always gets that funny look on her face when I spend money.

I hope whoever buys this set, to put it to use, & not as a shelf ornament.LOL

That also goes for myself. I have quite a few shelf ornaments, & drawer fillers.

I expect to see some projects with inlays in them.

By the way, don’t forget about Oscorner's memorial.

I bought a set of guides at Harbor Freight for $20. Yeah, I know, it’s from China. But it’s brass, well machined and works as well as the high-priced stuff you buy a Woodcraft or Rockler. In fact, their stuff could be made in China, too!!!
