Inlay strips
« on: November 19, 2004, 04:25:10 PM »
I had friend ask me how I make my inlay strips.  Itís a little confusing until you do it a few times so I told him I would take some pictures next time I ran some.  Thought I would post a picture here.  



Scrap walnut, ash, and cherry.  At the top you can see how I glue up the blank and slice the strips off.  Pushed together a few strips at the bottom just to see the different patterns.  The pattern on the lower right was the winner.  Iíll resaw the blank about 1/8" thick by 30" long and it is going for trim around a bar.

Donít take much talent or skill but really shows off the beauty of our native trees.

Larry, nice work!  

I think your holding back on the talent and skill aspect of making those though  ;)!

I also like the image of the saw blade in its kerf and the blade's shadow. I think that image would make a nice inlay in the right spot.

 ??? Are you gluing up the cutoffs before or after resawing ??? Very nice work. Are you using a fixture and a verticle bandsaw when cutting to 1/8"  ???

Beautiful piece of work
How does that blade system work, is it like a cantilever type setup? Do you move it manual or is it powered?
very cool 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Isawlogs & WoodSmith Ė The saw is nothing special...just a underpowered Delta contractor saw with a home made cutoff sled on top.

fstedy  Ė Yeap, the cutoffs are all glued into a solid block before slicing the 1/8" strips.  I mostly use an ordinary shop bandsaw with a fence to re-saw.  If the strips arenít to wide I sometimes use the table saw as it is a lot faster.

Thanks for the nice comments guys!

There is a web site that has a program to help you make
the lamination strips. I use it to make my bowls and plate
with designes in them.
