May Demonstration
Brian Greb
Introduction to Using a Router for Inlay

Brian Greb

Brian Greb

This month’s demo will feature Brian Greb, who will be demonstrating various ways you can use a standard high-speed router for inlay. Brian’s demonstration will start with a brief overview of routers and how they are typically used. He will then discuss the differences between inlay, marquetry, and parquetry. Brian will also discuss the “hand method” for inlay and how to prepare the inlay material.

Brian will also demonstrate a simple method of doing router based inlay. This method is great for those just starting out with router inlays. Supplies like beginner kits and router bits are available from Woodcraft to get you started. Advanced methods of using a router for inlay will also be discussed. If you’ve been looking to find another way to use your prized router, you don’t want to miss Brian’s demo!

Remember to bring some of your recent projects: Be sure to bring some of your recent turned projects for our Show and Tell, or Show and Ask session. This can be a completed turning, or one that you are still working on. During our Show and Tell, you will have the opportunity to show your turning to the group and tell us a little about how you turned it, what finish you used and if you encountered any challenges when turning, sanding, or finishing the piece.

Everyone in the club is interested in what you've been doing at the lathe. If you need help with a project you're working on, bring it and let's discuss it during the Show and Ask session. There is a lot of experience in the club and everyone is always happy to help.

Invite your woodturning friends: Please invite any of your woodturning friends who you think may be interested in joining our club. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (Steve) at 713-826-0046 cell. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!
