Another inlay project

Post by nicksilva »

this is another Aspire inlay project. 18" square in Mesquite, Maple, Walnut, White Oak, Sapele, and Wenge.
I'm calling this my Bob Ross tribute piece as I add 'happy little clouds' as he would say.
It was fun doing this one. cheers!

Thank you. The inlay pieces start off at 0.26" so that there is a little room to sand flat.
Normally, the back stock is the same thickness and is built around the inlays. In this case I just used
pockets into a recycled and resawn stair tread in side grain white oak. The pockets had a floor of about 0.06" which
bucked a bit when I added the glue. Fortunately, the belt sander worked to flatten it enough to
glue to a 1/2" piece of plywood. cheers!

Nice work Nick. Different species wood make for a very pleasing aesthetic. Then throw in the happy clouds and it makes for a splendid scene Bob Ross would envy. Thanks for sharing. :lol: :lol: :lol:
