Walnut with maple inlay

Post by Aussie »

Here is my copy of Broinwood eagle cutting board.
Have a long way to go, one error, I was under a time pressure to get this board finished by tomorrow.
First coat of oil...

Hi Scott,
Yes a couple of problems that I would correct.
The Harley Davidson text at the top…. I should have left the “A” with the center triangle, and the Y is not right either.
Second problem is I had some bandsaw drift with the “wing” on the right hand side and I could not go deep enough to sand it out without sanding the center logo too much and losing detail.
Third problem … I should have waited until my Osage Orange timber arrives from Bell Forrest, this is used for the eagle beak and talons.

I am happy with the inlay fit and detail.
This board is a gift for a painter that has been working at our house over the last 3 week…yep he is a Harley rider.

IF you hadn't mentioned it, I never would have seen the Wings. :)

I don't know much at all Ron---but that looks really nice to me.
You sure have come a long way on your skills of Zank Inlay, and by
the way thanks for the help with the settings.
