Default Just added a group for People interested in Inlays and Marquetry

Hi, Just added a group for People interested in Inlays and Marquetry. I can not add much info until fall, but I figured I would get it started now.

Go to quick links then click social groups.

Thanks and it is a good start. This is the first social group on the forum. And I can think of no one finer to start it!

Thanks sir!

I think Inlays and Marquetry can appeal to woodworkers in any specialty from remodeling to furniture making. And Marquetry can be done with very little initial outlay and tools. I started Marquetry with some veneer samples and a razor blade.

I will add the definitions of Inlays and marquetry, they are different and some other background info on both the crafts in the next couple of weeks. This group is not necessarily about floor inlays at all, just a starting point for how to make your current project even better using these simple to learn crafts.

What I like about inlays is they can be applied to any piece of wood and really bring some beauty out of the piece, the whole project, or the joinery, depending on how the inlay is done.

And like you say, most of it is easier than most woodworkers think. I seen a podcast on some inlays on a table leg that got me thinking about it. I still haven't actually done it because I'm trying to find the right widths to fit the dados for the inlays.

There are as many different methods as there are people too. I hope to gain some insight by seeing how others approach inlay work.

I agree!

Nick it's great having you here. And I'm looking forward to your contributions.

I always enjoyed reading the things you wrote over at the other place.

Hi Nick - what a great idea. I just finished a bunch of window frames in which I inlaid a dog paw print in maple. It was pretty complicated (for me, not for you). I'll make up a post of how I did it, and you can tell me the right way!
