    Default Syyrene Backed Fabric Inlays

    Hey guys,

    I've been playing with a Donek Tools drag knife at work. Mostly it's been cutting styrene and other shade materials. Friday i had some time to play with some styrene backed fabric and do some inlays. I'm hoping I can convince the boss to let me design a cylindrical flush mount with some intricate inlays for an upcoming trade show.

    Regards
    Randy

    Does the gadget support tiling?

    Actually, this is my first attempt at inlay work with a drag knife. I've been doing vcarve inlays in wood for a few years and i'm going to be trying that technique in 1/8" acrylic soon. This success is due to the gadget included with vcarve pro (which i convinced them to purchase at work). I'll be sure to get a hold of you if I have any other questions.
