This is an epoxy inlay project for a wall hanging piece I made. Cherry, Walnut strips and Maple stripes make up the panel.

The inlay pockets were cut with a Shaper Origin, than back filled with various colors of epoxy. Sanded up to 320g to get the epoxy to show well, then I back sanded the wood as well as I could to 220g.

Danish oil to add some depth. I used the cherry tinted oil on the Cherry wood and Natural color oil on the Maple and Walnut.

Then shellac, then several coats of lacquer and hand buffed.

been curious about the shaper origin. Easy to use?

The plaque turned out great.

Very easy to use. Watched some videos before it arrived and was off and rolling. I keep finding new things to do with it! Lots of options, and it does a very good job at what I’ve asked of it so far. It’s expensive, to be sure, but I don’t really have room for a gantry CNC and had to ‘settle’ for the Origin…and I couldn’t be happier that I did! Probably not a great tool for a production shop, but for a hobby shop or small shop it’s outstanding.
