Default John Holmes

Hello! Members I"m new At this so please be a little understanding
Just curios about the forum and it possible benefits
I 've been doing wood work for 51 years but we all can learn from others hard work and trials and perhaps pass along some tips of our own. Hopefully this will happen in the future.
I do basic inlaying: custom furniture and cabinet work as well as sound system related woodworking projects
I'm in Philadelphia PA

thank you
John Holmes

Gidday, John. We're a forum with members of widely ranging experience (and skills ) I think I'll be picking your brains on inlaying which is a new field for me. Enjoy.

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

Welcome to the forum John, I'm of the same opinion as Geordie. I could use some tips on inlay work. I have tried it one or twice, would like to do more.

Welcome John

Like you, I had many years with woodworking, and thought I had a good grip on the subject.

This forum has given me new ideas and technics, that I never knew existed. There is a wealth of knowledge and someone always has the answer or an opinion on how to do it.
