    Stork inlay practice

    I said I would give this a try. This is just practice people. Not the real deal. This is cut in 1/8” BB. This is the thinnest I have ever tried this. I painted the piece to give contrast. It didn’t finish quite flush. The difference? The thickness of the shelf liner to protect the wood and the paper pattern. Yep, it mattered. Haven’t tried the stars yet. Might have to alter the pattern slightly for the feathers, or practice more to get them more pointy.
    Well, it seems I have insufficient memory. I can’t post the picture. I will add the picture as soon as I can figure it out.

    Re: Stork inlay practice

    Matt, could you use that in 1/8 inch and round over the edge to make it a raised medallion?

    Re: Stork inlay practice

    I guess that's an option, but Berta sed she needs to work in 1/4" thick medium. I actually would prefer it 1/4 thick - this way I can resaw it in half and get two medallions out of it. Or I can use 1mm (.040") thick ebony and holly laminated to a less expensive wood making the sandwich a quarter inch thick. Anyway a raised medallion is not appropriate for this project. Thanks for giving me this option though. Its a good alternative for a future project. Matt...

    Re: Stork inlay practice

    Wait, what? I can do this 1/4 inch? You know I have just been doing this in 1/8 BB Ply right?

    OH, and I tried the stars. Getting the ends pointy is not doing to well. When is this due? I don’t have 3/0 blades. The smallest I have are 2/0. Are there smaller ones? Scott? Bruce?
    They don’t come in fast. I will go back to fine tuning the stork in the meantime.
    I do have a piece of Katalox (Mexican Ebony) and a small bit of Curly Maple, and some blueish Holly in 1/4 inch. I could use as a sample to mail to you.

    The smallest blades I have seen available are 8/0 jeweler blades. They are Swiss made and sold under the name Pike. They have 84 teeth per inch vs a 2/0 blade that has 56 teeth per inch. http://www.ottofrei.com/jewelry-tool...ols/saw-blades

    I have never used any blades smaller then a 2/0.
