So this is a picture frame a client of mine wanted, for some idiotic reason I suggested trying a folded inlay, I was kicking the idea around in my brain for quite some time (and want to further the idea with another project) it was a bit more difficult than I imagined, I used red heart plugs as the inlay and did it into a 1/4 thick piece of osage and a v groove router bit in my router table, then glued the two pieces to a straight stock. The problem I think came with the osage, it’s tough stuff, so even though I left only a hair to fold, it was still brittle enough to crack on some of the folds, I’m thinking next time either sand the excess away to just so or just use veneers. I sill love this idea though and want to pursue it. And the customer loved it (Which is what counts when you got to feed yourself)
