Super Video Tony, it covers all of the details perfectly. I particularly like the trick of using ca glue on tape for clamping purposes.

Thanks Jim,
I learned the tape trick by watching Woodsmith Shop on PBS TV. It’s so nice when you don’t have to wait for glue to dry.

Thanks Steven,

Thanks Jon,
Thanks for subscribing to my YouTube also, I’m no pro at making videos they are a little crude… I just try and get the point across. Maybe someone will get something out of this info.

Pottz,
I have heard about inlays for years but never looked into it. I avoided them thinking I wasn’t good enough to do that kind of work.
Boy was I mistaken. I always thought you had to hand cut everything. Wish I dug into this a long time ago! LOL!

Great tutoring Tony good info for anyone. I also like the idea of ca glue with the tape. I always use double face carpet tape since I have a good stock. I wonder why. Your insert look perfect and here I believed you’ve done these many times before.

Neat little video wsTC...
Couple of good tips.. love the CA on masking tape method… I always hated using double sided tape in the past (until a recent revelation).


... I m no pro at making videos they are a little crude…

Hell T, compared to some of my attempts, that is one helluva Cecil B. DeMille production. Though you gotta give us non-readers more time to read the pop-ups… like the way you pause the playback during.

Thank Dave,
I looked at those 8 sides that were receiving inlays and thought shoot I got to mark and center and attach my template on each side and hope I’m on the money!!!! NOPE Ain’t doing that!!!!! Because the light bulb lit up over my head. LOL! Jig….. a perfect solution for this job! No marking every one just slip it in and go to town! LOL!

Thanks LBD,
I always hated using that sticky hard to get off Double Face Tape. Sometimes it took some wood fiber with it as I peeled it off.
CA and tape works great! So my video was ok except for the “too quick to read the text”? I had that same thought after I uploaded it to YouTube. But then I thought you can always pause the video if it flew by to fast. Those pauses were still shots added into the video. Next time I’ll allow more time on those. Thanks for the Kudos LBD!

...So my video was ok…
- woodshaver Tony C

Yeah, yeah… don’t tell me you missed out on an Oscar yesterday….

Similar to you, I hated double sided tape… I then saw a video that made me a tape convert. I did make a blog about the easy method for applying tape and a link to the tape I now use (link is for the product and not for sourcing).
It is quicker than CA… and I always manage to get CA on everything but what it was intended for… that is the reason why I always use the same “uniform” in my workshop… it is covered in CA and I’ve ruined many a good apparel by that practice.

Yup… I missed out on an Oscar too busy trying to peel off some DFT… Then looked for one of my tissue boxes to dry my tears! Ouch! LOL!

I agree no matter how careful you are CA will find a way to get you stuck on something. I have a bottle of CA remover just in case I make a boo boo! Your tape is much thinner my double face tape is thick and super sticky and gummy. I think it may even be carpet tape. I don’t know I just know I hate using it. I’ll be careful with the CA and continue using it. It works but you better be careful.

Very clever out of the box and straight from the heart thinking there Tony!!

OMG how corny is that!

Anyway well done, but the usual question or two
1. So where is the derringer hidden this time?
Otherwise that’s a YES from me!

Oscar: don’t be too disappointed about no Oscar from what I saw they just get stuffed under the seat in front anyway!!
