During a recent visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, I was blown away by a video I watched on creating wood inlay. Here is the video:
I always thought inlay was beautiful, but the video gave me a new level of respect for the craft. When I sat down to think of a Father's Day project, I decided that I might be able to create a wood inlay ornament for a small wooden briefcase I had picked up at Michaels. I used my ScanNCut and some very thin wood veneer with an adhesive backing to create this adorable gift box for Dad:
I think the inlay accent on the box looks so professional! And when I showed it to my assistant Suzanne, she kept running her fingers across it, saying "oh, that's so cool." We both agreed that it absolutely looks like real inlay!
Watch the video for the how-to:
Obviously, I did this on a box, but you could easily take this idea and do it on a table, a frame, all sorts of different surfaces! It's wood inlay made super duper easy!
Please note: The briefcase I linked to isn't exactly the same as the one in the video, but I couldn't find that one online.
Thanks for stopping by!
