This is the bottom panel for a cherry piano bench I am building. I was about to glue up the sub assembly, but thought the poplar was just too plain, and I had some thin cherry strips left over from dimensioning the blanks a couple weeks ago. I use an 1/8” down spiral bit to try and avoid fuzz, and it worked great. After hand routing everything I epoxied the pieces in and then smoothed it all down with a hand plane. Haven’t sanded anything yet, the plane and scraper did a great job, but I think I will, then finish it before glueing it into the assembly.

It will be installed in the lower frame so the inlay can be seen from underneath the piano bench.

here’s a link to a video of the process.

Thanks Jim. I have done little here and there inlays before but really went after it with this one and enjoyed it. Lots more hours went into it than I had planned….

Thank folks, I wanted to do something for the underside of the piano bench and this is something I have wanted to do for awhile. Just a larger inlay, I didn’t know of what until this.
