Inlays for a custom look (5/5), Mar 3, 2017

By Tommy Bernard (Johnson City Te US)

I build a lot of large items and my customers like wide boards for all exposed sides which is hard to do and not finding any defects. I use the inlays to cover holes and cracks. By using a different species it adds character and custom look that they love.

Inlay work (4/5), Jul 10, 2020

By Neal Grossman (Morganton NC US)

Great video....prior to viewing it I wondered how to cut out the inlay that's used to install into the work piece. Now I understand your actually routing through the inlaids entire board thickness. Again very helpful would have givin a 5 star rating except for the guy doing the video was pissing me off trying to remove the double sided tape backing.

Lol......just kidding...Thanks guys!

Inlay (4/5), Jan 27, 2018

By Raymond Jones (South Weber Ut US)

This will be my first attempt at inlay work. I purchased the Ultimate kit. I'm not sure of all the different steps. At the beginning, when you cut out the pocket, is there any special way to remove the whole pocket? And secondly, is it preferred to use a down cut bit or a up cut? Thank you

Great video

Satisified (4/5), Nov 2, 2016


The Value for the kit is good. To get perfect inlays it takes a bit of practice but it is worth every min.
Would like to see two bits in the kit.
