  1. General Routing
    Today I was asked how thick is the material I use in my decorative inlays. The answer to that depends on what it is you are building. If you're adding something like AmbersBear to a kids toy chest than I would suggest using inlay material around 1/8" thick. You can use thicker inlay...

    I'm in the process of filming how to build five unique Christmas Ornaments using the EZInlays Christmas OrnamentEZ kit. I guess I should follow my own instructions because the first two cuts I made I used the wrong template!!! :jester: I drew out all of the patterns on the inlay material...

  10. Starting Off
    Hi! I am a mosaic artist and brand new to this site (and the realization that plunge routing could be my new best friend!) I do mosaics and have learned that, rather then trying to get a clean, SECURE border on a table, I could do a shallow plunge routing of the surface and make my own already...
