First Inlays and Burls

Back for the winter in the shop after taking off the summer due to the heavy workload. Got the burl over in Maryland while working for a while, a few years ago. This is the smallest peice of all of them all (biggest is over 200 pounds) and when I first opened it I was afraid that it might not be as impressive as I thought it would be, but turned out great. Also, really glad rot never occured. Anyways this is the second winter turning and getting more advanced in the specifics and moving up the difficulty as time progresses. Inlay has some pretty toxious fumes if anyone hasn't used it before. They say make sure you use in a well ventilated area, definately would recommend this. Well hope you guys enjoy the pics. Plates are of wormy maple and hickory, while the burl not exactly sure.

To do the inlays, I just used a 1/2" skew. Making sure the the inlay was deep enough. Because the first one that I tried, when I made my last turning, I apparently took off too much and ended up with only half the inlay intake when I was done.

You definitely need to either remember how deep the Inlace is or cut it deeper at the beginning. Not that I've cut through you understand but my "friend" did. I also undercut it into a slight dovetail shape. Inlace doesn't move the same as wood and it could pop out over the years. I have only had it happen when I purposely turned an Inlace bead on the very outside of a platter just to see. It held tight for about year or more and then started coming loose on one side.
If you put Inlace into a groove instead of on the end it will probably last for a very long time. I do have a mirror that has Inlace and is at least 10 years old.

Didn't think that the inlace would pop out, very interesting to hear that though and will definately keep that in mind though. I made sure not to sand the inside of it and put just a couple little extra rings inside where I wanted to put the inlay thinking that would want it to hold a little more. Well its a Christmas present so I hope it holds. Thanks for the heads up though.
