Default Inlay Project::

Well, I finally did it. I have been thinking about doing an Inlay project & kept putting it off. So, I finally tried it & of course I had to do it the hard way & do it with Lexan. I really was'nt sure if it would come out OK, but, I think it looks good for a beginner. Only did it as a pilot project, so now I will try it with wood. Enjoy. -- Perk

Great work, Perk! I will be trying an inlay project real soon. Just got the right blades (FD) yesterday. How thick is the Lexan you used?

Thank you everyone, but, I noticed I'm not as steady as I would have liked to be. The edge is not smooth, it's a little wavy in some places. The yellow was only 1/8th in. & the black was 1/4in. Didn't like that, but, when it's free, can't complain. Lexan is like a plexiglass, it is a solid color too, but, it really works good with light behind it. I made some tree orniments from it. Thanks for the comments everyone. -- Perk

Your Univ. of Iowa logo really looks good, but then I'm prejudiced being from the Hawkeye State. Hope you all will watch the Orange Bowl game (Iowa vs Georgia Tech) tomorrow nite on Fox.
