Inlays - Pushing the Limits

Postby musicalfisherman » Fri Mar 01, 2019 12:31 pm

I did my first inlay about a month ago. It's been a bit of a learning curve. But thanks to several posts on this forum I've finally got the bits and machine (CNC Shark HD4) dialed in.

I decided to push the limits and see how fine of detail I could get in my inlay. I'm actually amazed at what this machine can produce. I did these with a 1/4" shank 60 degree v-bit. Attached are a few pictures with a .9mm pencil for reference.

I couldn't post more that 3 files in the first post. Not sure why, but here are the rest.

great work- is there an advantage to having the inlay grain perpendicular to the back ground?

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been on in over a month.

I put this into an urn for someone. It just happen that the grain was vertical on the urn. I've done inlays on vertical and horizontal grain, and there's no advantage either way...it's just appearance.
