Inlay is a great way to adorn your woodworking projects. Even the simplest item can become incredibly compelling if it features a well-executed inlay. With the right materials and techniques, its just like painting with wood. Only non-artistic folks like myself can actually do it!

Really great video, sheesh lol I feel like I could inlay a portrait after watching this
Just plain awesome! Thank you so much for sharing. A wealth of knowledge.
Great tips all the way around. Thanks for sharing your talent
1: would using a dark marker/sharpy work for the sides (instead of the sand-burning)? it saves you (a lot of) cleaning afterwards?
2: the sand-burning shrinks the pieces – isn’t that an excellent trick to get them to fit and then wet them a bit so they lodge themselves in place? because in the video you wet them before you put them in?
3: how much time did this take? and, do you still use this method/technique, 10 years later (it’s Xmas 2020, today)
Again, great job and tutorial – subscribed – thank you!
This video is exactly what I was looking for. Easy to follow tutorial and packed full of information. Thank you!
Excellent work thank you for inspiring great ideas!!!
Heating the Zebra wood was an awesome result, really pretty.
Dig your methods. Taught me some things. I love to trip, but you might not want advertise, Even if it is allowed.
How thick.were your slices of wood
You don’t need carbon paper. After tracing the pattern turn the tracing paper over, redraw your the same pencil lines on the back side. Turn the paper over again correct side up then do what we would normally call a rubbing. Rub your pencil firmly over the lines you originally traced and the graphite on the underside will transfer to the wood.
damn dude, your video & audio quality for the year 2010 is outstanding… ahead of the time. EDIT: the quality of the piece for "Nicole" is also GREAT.. I like the the "Nicole" piece’s top with the line down the center… adds character
I know I’m 11 years or more late but, this looks incredible. So glad I started following you. Thx for taking the time to show this artwork.
The tip on sanding while the glue is wet is a smart one.
You’ll route your eye out!
That is really nice
Excellent job and very well done video. Great and very understandable. I took a marquetry class using the double bevel technique and a scroll saw. I don’t trust myself with a router like you do.
That was terrific. You are a great communicator!
Thanks for the very thorough walk through.
Watching this 11 years later and its still relevant, I guess now a days you could just do it on a CNC, but how’s that going to challenge your woodworking abilities?
Great job sir, you’ve inspired me to give this a go, do you remember what size bandsaw blade you used, looks like a 1/4" but its hard to tell from the video?
When you overlap the two pieces, how does that not keep the top piece too proud and create a void underneath?
YouTube videos like this one are an inspiration to wood workers everywhere. I really can’t understate the impact educational videos like this have had and will have for the decades to come.
Best explanation and instructional video I’ve seen in a long while!
There is absolutely no sane reason to not wear eye protection. If you take your eyesight for granted you better rethink it very closely. I wouldn’t do the project if I wasn’t able to do it with eye protection, especially using a rotor. Even if you are frying food or cooking bacon what do you think would happen if a drop of hot oil landed in your eye. Did you ever have eye pain, you would rather have all your teeth paining you. Anyway eye protection 100% no matter what.
Excellent video! This really inspires me to want to learn woodworking.
Fascinating but I could not imagine the scrap pile of mistakes I would make attempting this! Lol. Wood rookie here.
Good video thanks, I was puzzled by your tracing of the flower from your monitor, why not just print it out?
I can’t woodwork without doing stupid things…
I know it’s been almost 11 years since you posted this video, but I just happened upon it. This was very educational for me and I believe I may have to try this! Thank you for the instruction! Beautiful work sir!!
*I used this plan to build a kitchen cabinet for my friend **Allmy.Tips** I feel proud to have accomplished such a project which she have come to love so much. Thanks a lot for a collection as this. It is quite comprehensive.*
As a landscape photographer, I totally get the Zen moment. Good to see others acknowledging it and talking about it!
When I was a kid here in the UK, they demolished a carbon paper factory at the end of our street. They actually found an identical factory underneath it !
Beautiful! I appreciate your clear instructions. Thank you!
👍👍👍👍👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️❤️the video, this 87 year old says nice work will try a small project soon , thanks..B/ J the calf.wild man ……
some use carbon copy
This was amazing…now I want to try this
Wow. I know what you mean about when your focused on the work. It’s the same thing when one meditates.
Really enjoyed this, thank you for sharing your talent and craft 🙂🏴
Grinling Gibbons…Master carver…his work quivered when disturbed…
Excellent job! You do a great job of explaining things! Thanks for sharing you knowledge!
The ca glue doesn’t discolor the natural wood tone?
