Re: Cutting Boards with Inlays

I actually use a 30 degree v-bit (Amana 45771) and get great results. Did you check out my tips I provided in my 2nd reply in this post? You may find something within that's helpful.

Re: Cutting Boards with Inlays

So in the end, he's doing standard Zank inlays. Starts off with a small endmill for clearance bit then goes to v-bit for the finished v-inlay technique.

Re: Cutting Boards with Inlays

When I look at other videos he's made he writes on the screen what he's using. In this one he notes 15 degrees at around 1:41 in the video.

Re: Biker Skull Cutting Board

Thanks guys. Appreciate the comments. Bike Night will be a few months away with the nearly 4 feet of snow on the ground. Sigh. :cry:

Biker Skull Cutting Board

Another cutting board using the Zank methodology. Am sure having lots of fun with these now that I'm getting better at the multi-wood species inlays. This is for my personal use and matches the skull tattoos I have on my arms :D

The board is approximately 15"x X 11"y X 1 1/8"z.

Multi-wood Red Rose Zank Inlay

Morning Everyone... I've been testing my Zank Inlay capabilities and after being successful with the 3 species inlay to make the "Kissy Lips" (photo 1) a few weeks ago, I decided to stretch myself and go for a 5 species Red Rose (photo 2). I'm very, very happy with the end results and the very tight...

Re: Inlay problem

To fill any gaps, I save some of the very fine sawdust from the cutting then mix it with a bit of wood glue. Then I press the mixture into the gap real well and sand smooth once cured. Works very well for me. Just make sure it's very fine sawdust.
