Step 1: Layout & Sand

Picture of Layout & Sand

So to start i cut some scrap oak and pine to the size and shape i wanted, and sanded to 120, just to save time later on.

i also labeled the inlay pieces as right and left so i knew which on went where.

Step 2: Chisel

Once i traced the inlay pieces onto the oak i went on to chiseling out a recess for the inlay.

As the pieces where small i took my time and tried to make it a tight fit.

Before i glued it in place i did a dry fit.

Step 3: Glue Up

Now onto the glue up,

I used a good amount of glue on this and used my mallet to make sure the inlay pieces where in place and not going anywhere, next i just clamped it up and waited for the glue to dry.

Step 4: Sanding

Now everyone's favorite.

I sanded from 120, 240, 320,500 and finished off at 1,200.

Step 5: Finish and Cord - Job Done

Thats it , i put 4 coats of gloss lacquer on sanding at 1,200 in between each coat.

Then tested the cords i have in stock and when i start selling customers will be able to order whichever leather cord they want making it even more personal.

I hope you enjoy!
