Topic tags/keywords: chest inlay scrollsaw

This is my first time posting a video, but not my first woodworking project, I started planing this chest back in Januray.

Very nice video! You also did a great job on the chest. I do a lot of double bevel inlay like you did and I know that lettering is tough to do. Looks like you did a great job on that part also. I know what you mean by cutting in the wrong direction on a line while doing this. What I do now is to remember that the top wood will fit properly if I keep the image or lettering to the lower side of the blade on my tilted table. This way I do not make that mistake any more. Took me a while to learn that.

Fantastic workmanship. The inlay is really nice. You should do more videos.
