Jason, thanks! I will have to try that, new tools, always fun! Can you explain, tho, what you mean by clamping a block to make a more true cut with the chisel, and, the compass paring?
And, yes, if you could show some photos of that process.. that would be wonderful. Thank you!
I am leaving for Arizona, for a week and a half, to go to an event to sell some of mine and Geezer's bows, and I do not think I will have internet access, really, so, no hurry on that explanation, I doubt I will be able to see it for a while.
And yes, Ivo, that inlay bits are very good. They are fairly shallow. The inlay you saw on the bow was a double width. I measured where I wanted it, scribed a line with my little scribing tool, and then used a tiny router on a dremel to remove just a bit of the stock. Then, glued and clamped. And sanded! I have to do more inlay on this bow. When I get back, I'll work on it more, and show that progress.
Take care, all and I'll be back soon.
