I’ve been purchasing inlay banding for years to enhance the look of my woodworking projects and thought it’s probably time to start making my own. In this woodworking tutorial video we go over 7 different designs to get you started in making these inlay strips. Inlay banding will instantly make your boxes, table tops and picture frames pop with class and elegance. This is one of those projects that the more you do it the more creative you get with it.

  7. BluuurghAg9 on January 14, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    I thought you were going to say you shave your balls.

  8. Celtic Whisper on January 14, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    Excellent but never catch a falling knife.

  9. NeoGeoEch13 on January 14, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Thanks for sharing, fun to watch and down to the point.

    So many cool patterns can be done. Nicely done David! – Jim

  11. pikesticker on January 14, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    As a newbie into inlay projects this video inspires me with my own exotic visions of patterns so easy to construct. And with all the sources of scraps, cut offs, bits and pieces of exotic woods online it provides an unlimited number of experimental possibilities. Thanks for your expertise.

  12. Jim Williams on January 14, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    I was thinking Jed Clampett just before you said it

  13. Manfred Bobski on January 14, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Dollar Shave Club Shave Butter also lubricates and prevents rust on cast iron machine tool surfaces

  14. toolate912 on January 14, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Dave, great video. Any suggested thicknesses for the first stage component slices? Or the final second stage slices? Are you typically doing 1/8 inch or shooting for something thinner? Did you find any preferences between using a router v. table saw to make the dados to accept the inlay?

  15. Jolien Brebels on January 14, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Beautiful inlay!

  16. Ivo Kolarik on January 14, 2022 at 9:15 pm

  17. Spencley Design Co. on January 14, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    I wish you would have made up words for all the designs haha

  18. DL Construction on January 14, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Bad ass my friend thank you very much 👍🏻😎🔨

  19. Buz Off on January 14, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    "I don’t know where I’m taking this…"
    For good reason. Sometimes artistry is letting the materials lead you.
    Beautiful inlays. Wish I had the tools.

  20. Walter Romano on January 14, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Realmente asombrosos

  21. Joe Faraone on January 14, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    David, you made this look so easy! I’ve got some legacy inlay from my great-grandfather. This stuff is stunning. Unfortunately, it’s so old that it’s falling apart. Thanks for giving me ideas as to how I can recreate some of the patterns.

  22. John Kirwan on January 14, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Great video thanks. Going to try out for a jewelery box I’m making! I think traditionally only face and edge grain was used, it looked like you used end grain on some of these- would it make the banding brittle?

  23. Matthew Condon on January 14, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    I love this video! They all look great and don’t look too difficult to make. So, I repair antique clocks, and some antique wooden clock cases have thin banding like these inlayed into the cases that follow the curve of the dial. They are much thiner that the banding in this video. I was wondering how you could go about making curved banding, say around a 4 inch circle. I can see you you would just clamp the banding around a curved piece of wood that was only made out of straight strips during glue-up, but what about the Chevron pattern?

  24. 57Sauce on January 14, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    This video is dope. 
    Did I use that right? Dope? 
    This is a fantastic video, and an awesome channel. I always learn something.

  25. marcus koko on January 14, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    In conclusion, use a router

  26. Brian Barton on January 14, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Great ideas thanks. Also another tip never use your bare foot to stop a falling x-acto knife.I know this from experience.

  27. Tyre Hester on January 14, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Even the plywood inlay looks good!

  28. Frédéric Bless-Moix on January 14, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    So beautiful

  29. omar omar on January 14, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    Excellent 👌

  30. Jim Pepper on January 14, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    Never thought I wanted to do this but now I do! I see you’re also a fan of the harbor freight clamps. They are the best bargain in history.

  31. SuperCacahuete93 on January 14, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Bonjour. C’est toujours un plaisirs de regarder vos vidéos.

  32. Thomas Marlière on January 14, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Very inspiring, thank you Dave 👍

  33. Vickie Fowler on January 14, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    I know this was just for demonstration purposes…. but, do you ever make longer blocks of inlay pattern to get more strips? If so, is there a maximum length that’s more advisable to use? How thin can you cut them without risking them breaking as you cut?

  34. J F on January 14, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    I love the combination of the Dollar Shave Club and a full beard 😄

  35. Jeremiah Langston on January 14, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    I literally winced when you droped that shave butter onto your cast iron… I spent a few moments telling myself that it was most likely oil based, and wouldn’t cause rust… lol

  36. Rob Simon on January 14, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    Really enjoy all of your videos! Still a bit green at woodworking (4-5 yrs)..lol, but you have helped me expand on what I know. Great to see a local guy keeping up the good ole wood artisan venture alive!!!

  37. April Degele on January 14, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    Jed Clampett 😀 You don’t look old enough.

  38. Evan McCrindle on January 14, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Very cool, I’m actually was just looking up how to do inlays for a table top, this video helps out a lot with that

  39. Alex Reid on January 14, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    What finish did you use there?

  40. KillerSugar on January 14, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Thumbs up for the Jed Clampet reference!

  41. Jim Pepper on January 14, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Also, what finish were you using on the wood during your dollar shave club plug? Btw I’ve been a happy dollar shave club for years

  42. Duca Schoenberg on January 14, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Nice, nice, very nice. However, you can make it better. Just google Stodoys plans and learn how to do it easily.

  43. Juan Contreras on January 14, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Awebo, no hablo inglés pero lo entiendo , muy buen video crack

  44. CodeFox on January 14, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    Bring on the gocarts!

  45. Chris Daniels on January 14, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    What teeth blade are you using on both saws?

  46. Haunted Hows on January 14, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    A falling knife has no handle. Other than that, great video!

  47. Ragnar-The-Viking on January 14, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Like it Dave. Keep up the woodworking. I could care less about anything else.

  48. Ben Fox on January 14, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    this is awesome! wish me luck as i try this…with hand tools only!

  49. jonathan larcom on January 14, 2022 at 9:55 pm
