Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The idea of metal inlay was born from the fact that wood does crack and often times has natural voids and crevices that don't always look good in finished pieces. Rather than trying to hide the imperfection, it is now possible to enhance the defect and bring attention to the void or blemish in a positive light.

Metal Inlay Techniques for Woodturning and Woodworkingcovers all aspects and details of successfully inlaying metals like copper, brass, bronze, pewter, etc. into your woodworking or lathe-turned artwork during your very first attempt. Techniques that have taken the author years to streamline are now condensed into a highly concentrated seminar on DVD.

Professionally written, edited, videotaped and authored, Metal Inlay Techniques for Woodturning and Woodworking reveals all the secrets for a technique that has added a signature style to the author's work who now adds metal inlay to wood whether it is, in fact, blemished or not.

Metal inlay techniques will add value and beauty to your woodworking and / or woodturning and will save your valuable timber from the landfill or burn barrel.

Chapters include:

Getting Started (The Basics)
Involves inlaying copper into a simple project with natural voids and explains the basics of materials and tools and quick tricks and tips on controlling the application.

Carve and Inlay (Advanced Techniques)
This chapter focuses on hiding natural cracks and crevices found in wood by enhancing the surface with carved fluid lines. Techniques and tool control for power carving are closely illustrated with close-up videography.

Laser Engraving and Inlay (Alternative Ideas)
Inlaying can also be applied to flat furniture work as well by laser engraving images into your work. The author shows an example of this by inlaying a motif into a sample drawer front. Ideas on obtaining images is covered in this chapter as well.

Understanding Your Materials (Troubleshooting)
This DVD would not be complete without this chapter. Troubleshooting a problem is often the most time consuming chore when learning a new technique. The author freely shares his solutions to common problems that may be encountered while learning the art of metal inlay. Metal Inlay Techniques for Woodturning and Woodworking will make a great addition to your woodturning or woodworking DVD library.

He explains in detail how to do the metal inlay. He shows graphically how to fix mistakes, hand techniques and what is occuring throughout the process. Most importantly, he explains why you should not deviate from his inlay methods. If you do not have the heavy duty wood machines, you would still know how to do it by hand. It's just time consuming without the heavy duty equipment.

Format: DVD
I have seen Ted's turned wood pieces and I have seen him do demonstrations on various aspects of woodturning. He is thoughtul, meticulous, and very professional at his work. So it is no surprise that his DVD exhibits the same level of thought and care for his subject. The DVD is well-organized, thorough, and well-written for novice as well as seasoned woodturners. He even shows how inlays can be done on other woodworking such as drawer fronts. He covers all the topics including which tools, what types of metal powders, and what types of glue should be used - all drawn from his years experience at perfecting his technique. There is even a section on how to correct mistakes in the inlay process - something that will undoubtedly happen to any of us trying out the techniques. All in all, a very professional DVD on a complex topic.
