    Default Paul and Damien's Vinlay

    First try of Paul Z's VInlay technique, lost parts of 2 pinion feathers on right side because of wood movement. VERY nice technique. Pocket .1" 1.1" width
    Button "scrap"

    That looks great Scott. Was the wood movement due to the double-sided tape?

    Thanks guys, No Steve, there are 3 cracks on the board(1 is 16") and I was told to use scrap the first few times. I'd CA'd the board the day before and clamped overnight. Was also told to do everything in the same day, didn't notice anything when surfacing, but over the course of the day it got 30degrees hotter and 20% more humid and it cupped and cracked the CA in the big gap. That meant the harder I clamped it-the shorter the distance between the wingtips. Anyways, second vulture is ready to be unclamped and surfaced. Bloodwood button scrap this time. Wish I had aligned the grain better.

    It does work great, doesn't it?
    I've done a ton of inlay with that method. I have 4 cribbage boards on the bot right now that are glued up and waiting for me to get back to them.
    It's very time-consuming, and I tend to lose patience, but if I calm down and take the time, it always turns out great.
    The eagle looks fabulous!!!
    I can see that it'd be a lot easier on me if I started using more solid objects than the script that I like to use. It's so fine and shallow that it's very hard to get it all just so.

    Pretty slick method. Dad and I got maybe 2 ambitious this morning, going out to clean up and glue the Zebra now. Good example of Hard Maple "Fuzzies" after first pass I was looking at it after first pass and thought "What are you Scott--NUTS?". Zebra 3.5" wide in same board as the "Vultures".
    3 passes now and looks doable after I touch it up a little.

    Scott, Make sure you post pics of crib boards, still remember that beautiful one that had Sassafras and the magnets. Never thought I could do stuff like that, but now it makes sense.

    Scott,

    I really like the looks of this. I would like to play around with some of these. Is there a thread on the forum or was this through vectric? ( Of course, I will go search it next...)

    I want to run some company logo stuff like this. Did it come out that flush? Surely you did a post-glue-up sanding, right?
    Really sweet looking.
