Had a request to insert some fishing lures into a Blokes BBQ Board…the client supplied the small plastic lures and I routered out the recess and used two-pack resin to fix the lures in the board…
The Board is Camphor Laurel and is 450 mm by 300 mm [18 in by 12 in]
Sanded to 1200 grit and finished with mineral oil [several coats]
This was purchased as a gift for a mad keen fisherman and I hope that this compliments his collection of all things fishy…

What two-pack resin do you use for this type of work, Larry?

yea that is really cool larry, i did that with some wooden flowers i had cut on the scroll saw and put them into the wooden tv trays i made for my sister..i mixed red cedar dust with the epoxy and it gave it a really cool color.., i love fishing, in alaska i did it all the time, but since my back p[roblems became worse, i had to leave my love of fishing behind…but this is a great way to customize your boards for folks…great job…love the wood…

Very very cool! Love the fishing lures! And it’s a great way for people like me who don’t know how to carve a lick to dress up a cutting board!

This a great board Larry.

The lure colors blend in quite nicely.

I thought me sanding the few projects I made to 220 grit was already way too much… Did you say 1200?
I hope you skipped some grits.
