veneer project

I am teaching myself the ways of using thin wood ... inlays and such. I made this tonight. I am wondering if something like X-Acto 12" Rotary Trimmer on sale for about $10 would be a good idea

It's cheap enough to be worth a try.

That looks fantastic! I've not tried any marquetry or inlay yet. How much time did you spend on a piece like that?

pete if I was to subtract the head scratching and the failed cuts and trying different ways to screw up... about two hours. I learned that 22 1/2 degrees is critical , you cant have too many spares handy, the tips are fragile, and I should clean as I go

Really nice! Are you working from some plans or a book? I'm looking for some "quieter" after-hours shop activities since the shop is in the basement and I've been wanting to give marquetry a go.

got the inlay in layed,next time need to make scribe lines deeper, and maybe invest in some veneer tape as I just used a circle of blue tape to hold pieces together and left the points exposed, they got hard to manage when setting into the glue....

+1 in that

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Groovy, beautiful work.

Can you put up a photo to show me what an Exacto rotary cutter is. I know the Exacto brand and their hobby kits but not a rotary cutter.

My wife is a quilter and we have several rotary cutters. They do tend to follow the grain and leave the straightedge more than an exacto knife. Crosscuts are great.
That compass and box looks great! My wife made a jacket with a compass on the back like that, I will have to show her this.
