Metal Inlay Techniques for Woodturning and Woodworking covers all aspects and details of successfully inlaying metals like copper, brass, pewter, etc. into your woodworking or lathe-turned artwork during your very first attempt. Techniques that have taken years to streamline are now condensed into a highly concentrated "seminar" on DVD.

The idea of metal inlay was born from the fact that wood does crack and often times has natural voids and crevices that don't always look good in finished pieces. Rather than trying to hide the imperfection, it is now possible to enhance the defect and bring attention to the void or blemish in a positive light.

Metal Inlay Techniques for Woodturning and Woodworking reveals all the secrets for a technique that has added a signature style to Ted's work, who now adds metal inlay to wood whether it is, in fact, blemished or not.

Metal inlay techniques will add value and beauty to your woodworking and / or woodturning and will save your valuable timber from the landfill or burn barrel.

Metal Inlay Techniques for Woodturners
and Woodworkers

Running Time: 69 Minutes of tightly edited, close-up video

Chapters include:

Getting Started (The Basics)

This chapter explains inlaying copper into a simple project with natural voids and covers the basics of materials and tools, with quick tricks and tips on controlling the application.

Carve and Inlay (Advanced Techniques)

This chapter focuses on hiding or disguising natural cracks and crevices found in wood by enhancing the surface with carved fluid lines. Techniques and tool control for power carving are closely illustrated with close-up videography.

Laser Engraving and Inlay (Alternative Ideas)

Inlaying can also be applied to flat furniture work as well by laser
engraving images into your work. Ted shows an example of this by inlaying a motif into a sample drawer front as well as several turned items. Ideas on obtaining images for laser engraving is covered in this chapter as well.

Understanding Your Materials (Troubleshooting)

The DVD would not be complete without this chapter. Troubleshooting a problem is often the most time consuming chore when learning a new technique. Ted freely shares his solutions to common problems that may be encountered while learning the art of metal inlay.

Metal Inlay Techniques for Woodturning and Woodworking will make a great addition to your woodturning or woodworking DVD library.
