Introduction: Melt Metal Into Wood *Live on TV YouTube Play Button
So my daughter asked me to make a you tube play button for one of her favorite youtubers, Unspeakablegaming. So lets make it live! I used Zebra Wood and will be pouring molten liquid metal pewter into the wood for an inlay. I haven't done this in a while so fingers crossed LOL.
I will also be using an epoxy finish, wow...here goes!
Step 1: What You Need
I used zebra wood, lead free pewter, a crucible and map gas to melt it.
Step 2: Router
I used a router to cut the pattern I was going to in lay. Be sure to use a dovetail bit to help lock in the metal.
Step 3: Get Your Motor Running!
I then heated up the pewter and poured it into the wood.
Step 4: Sand and Finish
I then sanded the pewter flush to the wood and put on a super shiney epoxy finish!
